Robotics Competition Resources: Home

Guide to information resources for various P-12 robotics competitions. Some resources are focused on southern Nevada area libraries.

Welcome to the Robotics Competition Resources guide!

This guide was created to support the participants of the 2019 southern Robotics Academy of Nevada.  This guide aims to connect robotics team coaches, mentors, participants, and STEM educators with competition resources and additional information sources.  Always verify competition rules and safety guidelines with the official competition webpages, as rules are updated throughout the year.
