ROBOTICON 2017 was our biggest and best event ever, attended by 3000 people who enjoyed playing and watching FIRST Steamworks, as well as all the other great activities, scrimmages and fantastic USF displays available throughout the weekend.  In addition to nearly 30 FIRST Robotics Competition teams, we were joined by over a dozen FIRST LEGO League teams, and a dozen FIRST Tech Challenge teams, as well as several FIRST LEGO League Jr. teams. 

ROBOTICON 2016 marked our inaugural event at the University of South Florida Sun Dome Arena, a venue more than twice the size of the previous one at UT, a perfect place to showcase the exciting FIRST Stronghold game!  There was also plenty of room for FIRST Tech Challenge and FIRST LEGO League teams, and even a mini FIRST LEGO League Jr expo. We were super excited to be joined by teams from China!  Oh – and there was a hurricane – but the games went on to a packed house!

We packed the UT gym to the rafters for ROBOTICON 2015, bringing in FIRST LEGO League scrimmages along with FIRST Tech Challenge and the FIRST Robotics Competition off-season game play. Recycle Rush stacked them high, fast and furious for our last event at the University of Tampa. 

ROBOTICON 2014 marked our second year at the University of Tampa and showcased the FIRST Robotics Competition game Aerial Assist.
