The North Dakota Space Grant Consortium sponsors 5-7 North Dakota teams to participate in FIRST Robotics. The NDSGC will support these teams' partial or full registration funding for a FIRST regional tournament. If a team qualifies for a national tournament, they may apply for additional funding (budget dependent).
FIRST Robotics is a wonderful program that gives students hands-on experience with computer science, engineering, technology, outreach, and teamwork. It is very time consuming, but rewarding for the students, faculty, their families, and communities. Our hardworking teams from North Dakota have been very successful in the competitions because they have the support of not only Space Grant and their respective schools but of their entire communities as well.
