– Cyber Robotics Coding Competition


Eligibility Requirements: This innovative event will help promote STEM, Coding and Computer Science across the country. The CRCC competition, open to all middle schools, is a virtual robotics competition that gives students the opportunity to experience coding and robotics first hand. The gamified competition platform (CoderZ) is an exciting way to get students to learn problem solving, computational logic and the fundamentals of computer science and engineering.

The competition is online and accessible to a much broader set of students than traditional competitions and will recognize inclusiveness and diversity as well as coding skills. Our objective is to get as many teachers and students involved as possible.
The event kicks off on October 9th with a Webinar for educators. Access to the software will be provided and teachers will also get guidance on how to work with their students.

The online competition events take place starting Oct 15th.
