RoboPRIDE Robotics Team is ready to compete...
Since 2008, Peace has participated in the FIRST Robotics Program, a program whose purpose is to bring together the nation’s leading companies and universities in a united effort to open young minds to the wonders of science and technology.
Teamed up with nine dedicated mentors, the Peace Robotics Team “RoboPRIDE,” gets a hands-on, inside look at an engineer’s profession. In six action-packed weeks, through a series of meetings, our RoboPRIDE team and mentors work together to brainstorm, design, construct and test a robot.
Every year RoboPride travels to one or two competitions where their autonomous and remote-controlled vehicle (weighing as much as 120lbs.) competes against other teams from across the country. Visit www.USFIRST.ORG to learn more.
This year’s Midwest Regional competition will be held at UIC Pavilion (University of Illinois - Chicago) on April 1 to April 5, 2015. Spectators welcome! Events are free and open to the public. Come and cheer on RoboPRIDE in the pit before they release “ThetaBot #2781” into competition.
