Save the DateWe’re happy to announce that ROBOTICON Tampa Bay 2016 is confirmed at its new location, the usfUniversity of South Florida Sun Dome, on October 8 & 9.  We’re grateful the University of South Florida for their generous support of ROBOTICON and their partnership in putting together a great program for attendees.

Thanks to the larger venue, we’re able to accommodate up to 28 FIRST Robotics Competition teams, and up to 15 teams each in FIRST LEGO League Jr., FIRST LEGO League and FIRST Tech Challenge.

We’ve got some great programming underway for our 4th annual FIRST Showcase and Off-Season event,  including an Educators Conference, Innovation Fair, workshops for teams and also mentors and volunteers this year, hosting an all new ROBOTICON Challenge, and we’re also screening the film Most Likely to Succeed,  which was shown during the FIRST Championship in St. Louis in April.

ROBOTICON is part of the Florida FIRST Off-Season Series, which kicks off September 24 with Panther Prowl at the Florida Institute of Technology, then comes to Tampa for our event October 8 & 9, and then heads south for Mission Mayhem on October 22 (tentative but likely) at Dillard High School.

We’ll be posting a full event agenda by the end of the summer, but you can register now by clicking the appropriate icon below.  As always, ROBOTICON Tampa Bay is free and open to the public!
