The mission of ROBOTICON Tampa Bay is to increase public awareness of and engagement in the power of hands on, mentor driven youth engineering and robotics programs like FIRST, and to provide participating youth with a low stress, high-quality competitive event with opportunities for skill building, networking, and college and career readiness experiences, with a focus on manufacturing and industry.

ROBOTICON is made possible in partnership with the University of South Florida College of Engineering, Hillsborough County, Sonny's: The Car Wash Factory, SOFWERX/DEFENSEWERX , PLuGHiTz Live Radio, and generous sponsors like AFCEA, USF Connect & the Florida High Tech Corridor, and other fine organizations.

The University of South Florida College of Engineering will have several lab exhibits across a range of industry from assistive technology to rocketry. ROBOTICON is the only event of its kind in Florida, free and open to the public, bringing together K-12 FIRST programs with real world engineering, manufacturing and business leaders.
