First robotics

  • Previously known as Canadian Association for Student Robotics

  • Established in 2001

  • Targeted towards high school students

  • Originally hosted only in Toronto, expanded to take place also in Waterloo

Botball robotics

  • Started in 1997 by the KISS Institute for Practical Robotics (KIPR)

  • Like FIRST also made for high school students

  • Botball is located in many cities across the USA

  • Contestants are given a kit to work with

  • They must report on their robot with online documentation

  • In the kit they receive a Handyboard, Lego RCX, XBC and an iRobot Create

Vex robotics

  • First started in 2005 as a spin off of the FIRST competition

  • The difference being the vex competition uses more accessible and affordable parts

  • The goal of the competition is to get young people more involved with robotics

  • In the first year of the competition there were 130 teams in 6 regions

  • In 2007 the competition was renamed the FTC

VEX Robotics

Best robotics

  • Boosting Engineering, Science and Technology

  • Est 1993 by Tad Mahler and Steve Marum from Texas Instruments

  • In its first year had 14 schools with 221 students attend

  • From 1995 to now the competition has gone through a steady expansion spreading to more than 7 states
