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 varsity Sport for the MindTM, FRC 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 robots to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors. It’s as close to "real-world engineering" as a student can get. Volunteer professional mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team.

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.

The Annual State Robotics Competition hosted by TCEA will be held April 12, 2014, in Deer Park, Texas. If you who have a passion for fueling the spark of creativity in education through science, math, engineering, and robotics, come for an hour, come for the day.
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. There will be over 1200 teams from all over Texas that compete this year in both the Inventions and Arena Contests.v190 teams and 800 students will advance to the state competition.

GEAR (Get Excited About Robotics) is a 6-8 week LEGO robotics challenge for elementary and middle school students during which student teams build and program LEGO robots (using the MINDSTORMS NXT kits) to perform specified tasks. To solve the challenge, students learn engineering skills through a teaming exercise in designing, building, programming, testing, and troubleshooting wheeled LEGO robots that perform and compete on an eight foot by eight foot field. GEAR itself (www.gearrobotics.org) is a nonprofit 501(c) 3 volunteer organization, which was created to foster interest among today’s youth in a career in engineering, science or technology. It provides the game rules for the annual competition together with instructions on how to build game tables and piece. GEAR also maintains Question and Answer and Frequently Asked Questions sections on their website. GEAR tournaments are held at various locations; for more information regarding GEAR tournaments outside of Lubbock, TX, please check the GEAR Website: http://www.gearrobotics.org/

MATE’s international student underwater robotics (remotely operated vehicle or ROV) competition consists of an international event and a network of 22 regional contests that take place across U.S. and in Canada, Hong Kong, Scotland, Japan, and Egypt. Student teams from upper elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, home schools, community colleges, universities, and community organizations, such as the Boys and Girls Club and 4-H, participate. The competition consists of four different classes that vary depending on the sophistication of the ROVs and the mission requirements.
