  • Robotics Banner

    The FBISD Robotics Competition is a robo challenge where campus teams compete separately on identical competition areas. Teams work to complete their tasks as efficiently and effectively as possible. The robot is the cornerstone of the competition.Teams design, build a prototype, program, and test their robots prior to the competition date.  Teams compete virtually using the completed robots. If necessary, the top teams complete a second round of competition to decide a champion. All robots must be built and programmed by students with sponsors or mentors serving only as advisors.
