Welcome to the home of ROBOBUFF
FRC Team 1633 / FTC Team 2873 / VEX VRC Team 2873
As a FIRST Robotics Team, our goal is to inspire in young people, their school and community an appreciation of science and technology, and of how mastering these can enrich the lives of all.
The FIRST Robotics Competition is an exciting, multinational competition that teams professionals and young people to solve an engineering design problem in an intense and competitive way. The program is a life-changing, career-molding experience and a lot of fun. In 2016 the competition reached more than 400,000 students on over 4000 teams in regional competitions reaching teams from 66 different nations.. The competitions are high-tech spectator sporting events, the result of lots of focused brainstorming, real-world teamwork, dedicated mentoring, project timelines, and deadlines. Of particular note: over $40 million in scholarship funds are available to this year's FRC participants, $20 million in scholarship funds for FTC participants and over $12 million in scholarship funds for VEX participants.
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 technology are exciting and interesting.
