Build a robot, draw a robot, code a robot with your friends. There are no rules other then to share the excitement of robotics with your friends, family, or community. Share with us how you will be celebrating!
The FIRST® Robotics Competition (FRC®) stages
short games played by robots. The robots are designed and built in six weeks (from a common set of parts) by a team of high-school-aged young people and a handful of engineers-Mentors. The students program and remotely control the robots in competition rounds on the field. The FIRST
Robotics Competition Regional events are typically held in university arenas. They involve 40 to 70 teams cheered by thousands of fans over three days (two days for District events).

CUAUV will be hosting its 2nd annual Robotics Merit Badge Workshop with local troops. We will have scouts from around Ithaca area come in and learn about robotics, engineering and the different robotics fields. Then they will get an opportunity to build their own robot with the SeaPerch robotics kits.

Dubbed a “varsity sport for the mind,” FIRST Robotics Competition combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. Under strict rules, limited resources, and time limits, teams of 25 students or more are challenged to raise funds, design a team “brand,” hone teamwork skills, and build and program a robot to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors. It’s as close to “real world” engineering that a student can get. Volunteer professional mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team.
Grades 9-12 (ages 14-18) get to:
Learn from professional engineers.
Build and compete with a robot of their own design.
Learn and use sophisticated hardware and software.
Be exposed to design, project management, programming, teamwork, strategic thinking and Coopertition™.
Earn a place in the Championship.
Qualify for over $18 million in college scholarships.
