St. Louis to Host FIRST Robotic Championships Until 2014

Due to St. Louis' hospitality and charm, the FIRST Robotic Championships has decided to hold the tournament at least one extra year in the city. The championships are heralded as a great way to get children interested in science, technology and, most importantly, their educations.

Sorry St. Louis, you will have to hide your spare LEGO pieces until 2014. The FIRST Robotics Championship and tens of thousands of robot-building youngsters are extending their stay here for an additional year.

St. Louis was originally selected from three finalist cities in 2009 to host the robotics championship between 2011 and 2013 and now the organization has decided to return in 2014 as well. The event is typically held at near end of April.

"We continue to be impressed by St. Louis’ facilities, infrastructure and the widespread community support to meet the growing needs of FIRST," said Ron Falcone, FIRST Championship site committee chairperson.
