Competition

We are an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation created to host an annual robotics competition for middle and high school students. There are no entry fees for our competition. We provide an identical set of robot building materials to each participating school at no cost.

This unique event consists of:

  • the excitement of a basketball game
  • the strategy of a chess match
  • the intellectual challenge of a science fair
  • the pressure of a competitive sporting event
  • plus hundreds of screaming fans, pep bands, cheerleaders, music, dancing and mascots.
