The 4th Annual IndyVRC was a fantastic success! On January 23rd-24th, 2016 over 160 teams competed for trophies, scholarships, and internship opportunities in addition to bragging rights. Dozens of sponsors, hundreds of volunteers, and thousands of spectators rallied to bring this event to students across the city – at no cost to families or coaches.
The IndyVRC provides a space for students to work alongside industry professionals to design, build, and program a robot to compete in an exciting atmosphere. We believe IndyVRC is an expression of our community’s commitment to cultivating early interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Together, we can make a lasting and significant impact and ignite a passion for STEM learning in our students.
VRC Division Awards
Middle School VEX IQ Awards
Elementary School VEX IQ Awards
The IndyVRC is for school-based teams only. Elementary schools participate in the VEX IQ division, as are middle school teams unless they have chosen to provide their own equipment and participate in the VRC division. All high schools compete in the VRC division. Check out Robotics Education for resources to help you get started.
The Mayor’s goal is for every school in Indianapolis to participate. We do this by covering event fees and providing kits and parts to all of our teams. We rely on our valuable community partners to come together and help make this happen. Learn how your organization can invest in our city’s students and help them gain valuable STEM experiences.
