  • Brazos Valley Regional , University High School

    Combining the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology, this is the ultimate Sport for the Mind. Watch as student-built-robots compete in the 2017 challenge entitled FIRST STEAMWORKS. How does it work? Each January, high school teams receive a Kit of Parts comprised of donated items and components worth tens of thousands of dollars. With limited instructions and working with adult Mentors, students have just six (6) weeks to collaboratively design, build, program and test their robots to meet each season's new engineering challenge. Once these young investors build their robot, the team competes in regional/district events that measure the effectiveness of the robot, the power of collaboration and the determination of students. Teams vie for awards and a spot at the FIRST Championship in St. Louis, MO where the best-of-the-best come together in late April. College scholarships top some $30+ million annually.

    Combining the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology, this is the ultimate Sport for the Mind. Watch as student-built-robots compete in the 2017 challenge entitled FIRST STEAMWORKS. How does it work? Each January, high school teams receive a Kit of Parts comprised of donated items and components worth tens of thousands of dollars. With limited instructions and working with adult Mentors, students have just six (6) weeks to collaboratively design, build, program and test their robots to meet each season's new engineering challenge. Once these young investors build their robot, the team competes in regional/district events that measure the effectiveness of the robot, the power of collaboration and the determination of students. Teams vie for awards and a spot at the FIRST Championship in St. Louis, MO where the best-of-the-best come together in late April. College scholarships top some $30+ million annually.

  • 3D Printing Fundamentals SBU, ASU Chandler Innovation Center

    Thanks to 3D printing, you can quickly and easily create a physical object from a computer model, literally printing the part as it goes. This is an easy way to prototype your parts before machining or injection molding. In 3D printing fundamentals you will learn how to set up your 3D model for 3D printing. The class will cover different 3D printing settings, troubleshooting, and how to prevent common 3D printing problems.

    Come have fun playing with robots! It's free. Any students middle school through graduate school interested in learning how to program robots should join the fun. Each week we'll teach you how to get a robot to accomplish some goal, such as solving a maze, playing robot tag, following a light, etc. The goal is to simply have fun and learn robotics and programming along the way. Students do not need any technical background. We provide the robots, computers, and will teach you what you need to know. All we ask is that you are excited to learn and can attend most weeks.

  • New York City Regional, The Armory Track & Field Center

    Combining the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology, this is the ultimate Sport for the Mind. Watch as student-built-robots compete in the 2017 challenge entitled FIRST STEAMWORKS. How does it work? Each January, high school teams receive a Kit of Parts comprised of donated items and components worth tens of thousands of dollars. With limited instructions and working with adult Mentors, students have just six (6) weeks to collaboratively design, build, program and test their robots to meet each season's new engineering challenge. Once these young investors build their robot, the team competes in regional/district events that measure the effectiveness of the robot, the power of collaboration and the determination of students. Teams vie for awards and a spot at the FIRST Championship in St. Louis, MO where the best-of-the-best come together in late April. College scholarships top some $30+ million annually.

    A major part of our GCMC Robotics Extravaganza, which includes FIRST Youth robotics and commercial and hobby robotics exhibits, is the Southeast Combat Robotics “Battles at Makercon“. Combat Robots, or ‘Combots’, range in size from 150g (smaller than a cell phone) all the way up to 220lb. And while some are exquisitely designed pieces of engineering, others are built from scrap metal and parts of old wheelchairs and power-tools. At robot battlesour 2017 event, we’ll have four weight classes: 150g, 1lb, 3lb, 15lb . And don’t be fooled by the small scale – these are tiny lethal weapons! This competition is open to all college, high school, and recreational builders and spectators. All 15lb weight classes will be combined. The arena will be 7 square with a steel floor. The competition format will be Double Elimination for classes with 6 or more entrants and Round Robin for classes with 5 or fewer entrants. All weight classes will use a modified version of the SPARC Ruleset . Weigh in and registration will start at 9:00am, and matches will start at 11am at the MakerCon event arena.
