The Orlando FRC Regional is held each spring, for the last 15 years at the University of Central Florida arena, now the CFE Arena. Annually, more than 3000 students from over 60 teams representing Florida high schools plus teams from the Southern U.S. , the Caribbean and South America, along with hundreds of teachers, industry and college mentors, parents and 6,500 pounds of metal, gears and electronics will complete in the FIRST® Robotics Competition Orlando Regional. Teams represent high schools from Tampa Bay to the Space Coast, and from Tallahassee to Miami, from across the southeast, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Brazil.
The FIRST® Robotics Competition Orlando Regional offers students an opportunity to win regional recognition for design excellence, sportsmanship, teamwork, and more, and advance to the FIRST Championship competition in St. Louis, MO and in Houston, TX in April. The public is encouraged to attend the Orlando Regional to catch the excitement of this intense competition, and cheer on their favorite teams. Admission is always free!
