STEAM Powered Sport for the Mind
ROBOTICON Tampa Bay is a youth robotics showcase organized each fall by the Foundation for Community Driven Innovation, a nonprofit educational organization, in partnership with the University of South Florida and Hillsborough County, FL and other fine community partners. Special thanks to Florida FIRST Alumni, ROBOT League of Tampa and West Florida Robotics for FIRST program support at ROBOTICON.
Throughout the “Robot Season” students on FIRST, VEX and other youth robotics teams are challenged to design robots in a fun and competitive game format. Each game pits the know-how, skill and resilience of their team and robot against that of teams and robots from all over the state, and in some events, all over the world. ROBOTICON provides a useful and enjoyable “one-more-time” post-season opportunity for high school level teams, as well as a “time-to-get serious” early-season opportunity for new season teams.
