  • Battles at MakerCon, Florida State Fairgrounds

    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.

  • MATE Florida Regional ROV Competition, Northwest Pool - St. Petersburg

    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.

    SeaPerch is an innovative underwater robotics program that equips teachers and students with the resources they need to build an underwater Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) in an in-school or out-of-school setting. Students build the ROV from a kit comprised of low-cost, easily accessible parts, following a curriculum that teaches basic engineering and science concepts with a marine engineering theme. The SeaPerch Program provides students with the opportunity to learn about robotics, engineering, science, and mathematics (STEM) while building an underwater ROV as part of a science and engineering technology curriculum. Throughout the project, students will learn engineering concepts, problem solving, teamwork, and technical applications.
