General Info

Milford is hosting a high school tournament AND a middle school tournament simultaneously.  HS and MS will not compete against each other and the awards will be separate.  

The Milford VRC event aims to promote robotics education to young people in the Greater Cincinnati region. It nurtures young people’s interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) by providing an interactive competition platform with definable and programmable robots. It also reinforces students' real-world problem-solving skills and teamwork spirit by providing hands-on experience and an idea-sharing community. It provides an experience full of engagement, challenge, and passion.

The competition is hosted by the Milford Engineering and Robotics Boosters (MERB), which provides engineering and robotics support to the Milford School District. The tournament winners, excellence award winner, design award winner, and skills competition winner will go on to compete at the state competition.
