Vantage Sponsors FIRST Robotics Buckeye Regional Event

Vantage was a proud sponsor of the FIRST Buckeye Regional High School Robotics competition held March 28 – 30, 2019 at Cleveland State University.

FIRST (www.firstinspires.org) is a competitive-based education program where students design, build, program, and compete as a team using robots to solve a new challenge every year. This year’s robotics competition commemorates the 50th anniversary of the first manned landing on the moon with a space-themed robotics challenge named “Destination: Deep Space”.High school students apply what they learn in school in a challenging team effort. Skills employed include math, science, engineering, business and project management, art, video, industrial sciences, and every creative muscle they have. The culmination of a six- week design/build/test season is participation in one of the FIRST Regional Competitions.
