We are always looking to extend partnerships with universities and companies. Please contact us if you are interested in learning more.

What is VEX?

We also compete in the VEX Robotics Competition. With VEX, teams are given a set of standard parts to build robots to compete in local competitions. In each competition, the winners qualify to compete in the world competition encompassing teams from all around the globe. The robots must be designed to fit into an 18x18x18 inch box and compete in a year round competition that is unveiled every year to the teams.

What is FIRST?


FIRST stands for "For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology". It is a non profit organization that aims to inspire students in the science and technology fields. The program was founded by Dean Kamen and Woodie Flower in 1989. FIRST has become a large and influential organization that has motivated generations of students to become the future of America’s innovation.
