Event List

  • FIRST North Carolina State Championship, Campbell University - Gore Arena

    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.

  • MATE Coastal Carolina Regional ROV Competition, Vex Robotics

    The MATE ROV competition is about student learning. It is designed to be an event that challenges students to apply the physics, math, electronics, and engineering skills they are learning in the classroom to solving problems from the marine workplace. Mentors (teachers, parents, working professionals) are expected to limit their input to educational and inspirational roles and encouraged to focus on the benefits of the learning process and not simply on “winning” the competition.
