TCEA State Robotics Competitions,
The Annual State Robotics Competition hosted by TCEA will be held April 13, 2013, in Deer Park, Texas.
TCEA is a non-profit education organization dedicated to helping educators innovate teaching and learning through professional development opportunities and exposure to new and emerging technologies.
The goal of the TCEA Robotics Competition is to inspire young people to become science and technology leaders. Robotics is an invaluable resource for teaching science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) skills. It also develops critical thinking, collaboration, and problem solving, along with other 21st century skills such as creativity, imagination, curiosity, innovation, and self-confidence.
TCEA provides students with the opportunity to explore robotics by holding 20 Regional competitions that reach rural as well as urban areas throughout the state of Texas. The winning teams from these regional competitions then have the opportunity to compete at the state-level. Advancing to the State Competition will be 180 teams (700 students).
