Miami Valley Regional
March 8 - March 11, 2017
Southwest Ohio's seventh annual FIRST Robotics Competition will be held at Wittenberg University; March 8th - March 11th. 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 50 of these teams. There are teams from 9 different states as well as one international team joining us from Istanbul, Turkey!
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.
