We would like to help scouts get involved STEM activities and get requirements for applicable badges! We are going to have robots from this and past seasons, access to our labs and as well as our Mechanical, Electrical, Programing, and Drive sub teams. Additionally, we will be inviting some other teams to have their robots at this event. We want to share what we do and help answer questions, give hands on experience to robots and set scouts up with local teams so they can complete their badges and hopefully get involved in Robotics or other STEM activities!

March 16th – March 18th, 2017

Requirement 6a of the BSA Robotics merit badge is to attend a competition. We will be encouraging the scouts to visit the FRC Finger Lakes Regional at RIT’s Gordon Field House (Thursday, March 16 – Saturday, March 18, 2017). It is free to the public and there will 48 teams from all across New York, Pensylvania, Ohio and Ontario in attendance. This is the only local FRC competition for the year so if scouts want a close, family friendly event to attend, this is their chance!
