Ohio FIRST Robotics Competition Buckeye Regional

March 29, 2023 – April 1, 2023
Wolstein Center
2000 Prospect Ave E, Cleveland, Ohio 44115

Welcome to the Buckeye Regional FIRST Robotics Competition’s home on the internet. The FIRST Robotics Competition engages high school students in the fun and challenge of building a robot of a specific size, weight (under 125 pounds) and cost (under $5,000) in as little as six weeks. The objective of each game is different each year and is revealed at the kickoff. This year, the FIRST Robotics Competition is inspired by energy with the game CHARGED UPSM presented by Haas.

Students from schools and organizations collaborate with mentors from government, academia, and industry to design, build and test their robot. All of this hard work and dedication culminates with the regional competition. The Buckeye Regional competition is one of many competitions occurring in the United States and around the world. Several teams that win the Buckeye Regional competition or other awards will be eligible to attend the FIRST Robotics championship in either Michigan or Texas.

The overall goal of the competition is to engage students in an engineering project to design, build, test, and operate a robot which would encourage them to pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).
