At present,TeamBots will run on the Nomadic Technologies' Nomad 150 robot and (very soon) onPersonal Robotics' Cye robot.

  • First robotics competition 3/29/00 Who points to it? 15 - The FIRST Robotics Competition is a national engineering contest which immerses high school students in the exciting world of engineering. Teaming up with engineers from businesses and universities,students get a hands-on, inside look at the engineering profession. In six intense weeks, students and engineers work together to brainstorm, design, construct and test their "champion robot". With onlysix weeks, all jobs are critical path. The teams then compete in a spirited, no-holds-barred tournament complete with referees, cheerleaders and time clocks.
