General Info

Welcome to the AHS Eagle Nation Challenge!

We are thrilled to host a fully in-person event in the state's largest venue!  We have a large gym with balcony seating for all teams to be right in the middle of the action throughout the entire tournament.  Skills fields will be running all throughout the tournament, interviews will be conducted by local engineers and former robotics students just like you!  Thank you for registering for this event and be ready for a great competition and year.
