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!
Combining the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology, this is the ultimate Sport for the Mind. Watch as student-built-robots compete in the 2017 challenge entitled FIRST STEAMWORKS. How does it work? Each January, high school teams receive a Kit of Parts comprised of donated items and components worth tens of thousands of dollars. With limited instructions and working with adult Mentors, students have just six (6) weeks to collaboratively design, build, program and test their robots to meet each season's new engineering challenge. Once these young investors build their robot, the team competes in regional/district events that measure the effectiveness of the robot, the power of collaboration and the determination of students. Teams vie for awards and a spot at the FIRST Championship in St. Louis, MO where the best-of-the-best come together in late April. College scholarships top some $30+ million annually.

Enjoy engineering, fun and robots during the 23rd annual Fundamentals of Engineering for Honors Robot Competition! First-year engineering students at The Ohio State University will showcase their cornerstone design projects in the Fundamentals of Engineering for Honors Program (FEH) robot competition at the Recreation and Physical Activity Center (RPAC). The university community and public are invited to watch student teams compete to see who has designed the best autonomous robot to meet the design competition specifications. The competition requires each team of three to four students to design, build and program an autonomous robot using creativity and engineering principles. A significant portion of their assignment involves planning, managing and documenting their work on the project.
