Robotics Team Kick-Off Meeting

September 5, 2012

Last year, the University of Northern Iowa Classic Upward Bound program had an incredible opportunity to participate in the FIRST Tech Challenge program. This program emphasizes the importance of science and technology engineering in our ever changing, highly sophisticated, technological world. The Upward Bound program assembled a group of interested program scholars to develop, design and create a robot to enter into competitions. During these competitions, scholars from around the state of Iowa competed for the opportunity to make it to regional, national and world-wide competitions.
