ROBOTICON Tampa Bay is a FIRST Robotics Competition event and Showcase. *Free and open to the public, it combines a full scale off season FIRST Robotics Competition event with FIRST LEGO League Jr., FIRST LEGO League and FIRST Tech Challenge practices, an Innovation Fair for students and guests, workshops, industry exhibits and more.

The mission of ROBOTICON is to provide FIRST K-12 Robotics Teams with a high-quality, post-season competitive event that provides opportunities for pre-season skill building, networking, and college and career readiness experience, as well as a fun and unique way for the general public to enjoy this amazing “Sport for the Mind”.

Join us October 7 & 8 to see all the great hands-on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics that FIRST offers, enjoy our Innovation Fair featuring interesting and educational exhibits on commercial and industrial robotics, related college and career displays and booths, and a full scale robotics competition with student designed and built robots.

The 2017 FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) Challenge, called FIRST STEAMWorks, a steampunk themed game in which high school students built robots designed to deliver gears and "fuel" to power an airship, through autonomous and teleoperated modes on a basketball court sized playing field. Teams have just six weeks to build robots that can weigh up to 120 lbs. Check out the FRC game challenge HERE. You can also see the other program game challenges at roboticon.net/the-games/

And join us for a great weekend of robotics fun and learning!
