Event List

  • Queen City Regional, CINTAS Center - Xavier University

    In FIRST STRONGHOLDSM, two Alliances of three robots each are on a Quest to breach their opponents’ fortifications, weaken their tower with boulders, and capture the opposing tower. Robots score points by breaching opponents’ defenses and scoring boulders through goals in the opposing tower. During the final 20 seconds of the Quest, robots may surround and scale the opposing tower to capture it. - See more at: http://www.firstinspires.org/robotics/frc#sthash.fzBKgIV4.dpuf

  • National Robotics Challenge, National Robotics Challenge

    The longest continually operating robotics competition in the world! The National Robotics Challenge is designed to provide students of all ages and levels of study the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of manufacturing processes, controls, robotics and other technologies through competitive engineering contests. Students are judged on their application of technology principles, engineering concepts and their ability to solve real-world problems through a team approach. The National Robotics Challenge is designed to complement classroom instruction and provide students the opportunity to apply classroom knowledge in challenging and fun situations. Each contest is specifically designed to test the students’ skills and knowledge in a particular area of manufacturing, technology, robotics and automation. The event is open to any student in elementary, middle school, high school, or post-secondary school anywhere in the world. Last year over 1000 participants from 9 states competed in the NRC event. Our vision is to become the premier robotics competition for elementary, middle, high and post-secondary school students in the United States.

  • Fundamentals of Engineering for Honors Robot Competition, The Ohio State University

    Enjoy engineering, fun and robots during the 22nd annual Fundamentals of Engineering for Honors Robot Competition! First-year engineering students at The Ohio State University will showcase their cornerstone design projects in the Fundamentals of Engineering for Honors Program (FEH) robot competition at the Recreation and Physical Activity Center (RPAC). The university community and public are invited to watch student teams compete to see who has designed the best autonomous robot to meet the design competition specifications. The competition requires each team of three to four students to design, build and program an autonomous robot using creativity and engineering principles. A significant portion of their assignment involves planning, managing and documenting their work on the project.
