OAKLAND — The Robotics Team will host Mainely SPIRIT at 8:30 a.m. Saturday at Messalonskee High School. Doors open at 7:30 a.m. for the free event.

FRC Team 2648 is part of an international organization called FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology).

The 2013 game, Ultimate Ascent, is played between two alliances of three teams each. Each alliance competes by trying to score as many flying discs into their goals as possible during the two-minute and 15-second match. Discs scored in higher goals score Alliances more points. Matches end with robots attempting to climb up pyramids located near the middle of the field.
