The reality is, there are too few students interested in pursuing careers in the sciences and mathematics. Our community goal is to achieve national recognition and send numerous students off to a higher education. Because of this program, we aim to increase STEM graduation rates and increase the number of students attending college.
To transform the community by creating a world where science and technology are celebrated and where young people dream of becoming science and technology leaders. The long-range vision of Innovos Robotics is to leverage the student competition activities to provide career role models in cutting-edge computer science and robotics. Innovos will bring active, attitude-changing STEM and robotics participation to the community, and in conjunction with this competition participation, promote the formation and mentoring of robotics and computer science clubs among K–12 students using social media as well as local workshops. Innovos aims to recruit, mentor, and train teen-aged young men and women students in STEM and robotics research, outreach, and competition projects.
The Robotics competition that Innovos will be competing is called FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC).
FIRST Stands for For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology

When does FIRST Robotics Competition happen?
In general, FIRST Robotics Competition operates during the school year (September).
Teams form and register in the fall.
The “official season” begins early in January when the season’s Challenge is announced at a Kickoff ceremony.
Teams are then given six weeks to create their robot.
District and Regional competition events start in late February and continue through April.
Teams that qualify are invited to FIRST Championship at the end of April.
There are also many off-season events in which teams can participate, strategize, hone their skills, learn new technology, meet other teams, and have fun!
