Need Some Ideas?

Just like robots, events can be for all ages, and of all sizes. Here are some ideas from past years, or contact us for help bringing your idea to life!

  • Show off your team's robot! Were you on a FIRST team? Extend your season and show off all your hard work! Plus, you may get some new recruits for next year. Bring your robot to the library, to a classroom, or a local museum! Invite other students to see what you've done.
  • Bring out your group's robots! Did you make a robot for a Scout project? Does your robotics club have a cool robot? Invite people to a meeting, or bring your robot someplace where people can see it in action.
  • Open up your doors! Do you work for a company or are part of a college that has robotics? Host an open house or lab tour and demonstrate robots. Invite local students or teachers to see what you are up to.
  • Create a robot party! Want to have a party? Host an robot block party. Invite local universities, companies, and robot teams to all come and show off their robots. Extend the invite to schools, groups and others to stop in and see all the robot demos!
