About Rumble in the Roads

The Rumble in the Roads is an annual one-day off-season FIRST Robotics Competition event hosted in Newport News, Virginia. The off-season event grows and strengthens the FIRST community in Hampton Roads by exposing new students, mentors, volunteers and sponsors to the excitement of a real FIRST competition.  The Rumble in the Roads is proudly presented by FRC teams 122 NASA Knights, 1610 Blackwater Robotics, and 2363 Triple Helix Robotics.

The FIRST Robotics Competition challenges high school students to raise funds, hone teamwork skills, and design, build and program robots to perform prescribed tasks in competition with an international field of competitors.  Technical and non-technical mentors from industry partner with FIRST teams as a way of promoting STEM education, inspiring the next generation of scientists and technologists, and exposing students to various career options.  Through FIRST, students build not only STEM skills, but life skills such as leadership, communication, and self-confidence.
