Pittsburgh Regional FIRST Robotics Competition
Thursday, March 14: Practice Day Friday - Saturday, March 15 - 16: Competition Full schedule: http://www.pittsburghfirst.org/programs/frc The Pittsburgh Regional FIRST Robotics Competition is an annual showdown between competing high school teams from Western Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Maryland, New York, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Canada. FIRST combines the excitement of sports with science and technology to create a unique varsity Sport for the Mind™. Under strict rules, limited resources, and time limits, teams of students are challenged to design, build, test, brand, and find local funding to compete in a different game every year. This three day event is free and open to the public.
The turnpike will see increase tolls for the ninth year in a row and most likely each year until 2044 according to Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission. The 6 percent hike will raise the cost of a trip from Ohio to New Jersey to $51.85 and $37 for E-ZPass users. Part of the reason is the turnpike’s obligation to pay PennDOT $450 million a year under a 2007 state law, earmarked for public transit, but cutting back to $50 million in 2023.
