New for 2018: Secret City Invitational FRC competition

In conjunction with the Secret City Festival, we’re proud to have hosted the First Annual Secret City Invitational for FIRST Robotics and FIRST Technical Challenge teams!

Competitions were held during the day, with evening entertainment across the street at the Secret City Festival — including headline concerts, a variety of performances, art show, games, and concessions.  There were opportunities to interact with local companies at the forefront of innovation in science and technology, including Oak Ridge National Laboratory and much, much more.
