Miami Valley Regional
March 1 - March 3, 2018
Southwest Ohio's eighth annual FIRST Robotics Competition will be held at the Nutter Center at Wright State University; February 28th - March 3rd. The event is free and open to the public. The FIRST Robotics Competition is an adventurous and creative multinational competition where the best and the brightest come together to solve an engineering design problem in an intense and competitive way. The program is a wonderful opportunity to change, mold, and inspire the people on nearly 4,000 teams participating from all over the WORLD! The Miami Valley Regional Event will host 2,000 energetic students from 62 of these teams. There have been international teams from Canada, Turkey, Japan, Brazil, China and Mexico!
Colleges, universities, corporations, businesses, and individuals provide scholarships to our participants. Involved engineers experience again many of the reasons they chose engineering as a profession, and the companies they work for contribute to the community while they prepare and create their future workforce. The competition shows students that the technological fields hold many opportunities and that the basic concepts of science, math, engineering, and invention are exciting and interesting.
