CRCC is an innovative virtual robotics tournament that excites and engages students in STEM. Schools can compete and involve students through gaming and competition in STEM, coding and tech literacy. No previous experience is necessary, everyone can participate. CRCC is cloud-based, can be accessed from any computer and uses simulation of virtual 3D Robots that perform complex tasks and missions. By learning to program, plan and strategize with the virtual robot to participate, students will compete within their class, grade, school, district and state to win stages and progress to the finals.

There are no news items for this competition at this time.

Students login to the CoderZ SaaS Platform where they work to complete missions that introduce them to mechanics, physics and programming accompanied by math, science and engineering principles. Students work during or outside class time on challenging, fun missions that require them to strategize, gain knowledge and score points to attain the next level. Each mission challenges students and gives them the skills and practice they need to progress through the competition. The interface utilizes drag-and-drop Blockly programming. This easy-to-use interface helps students learn computational thinking, the coding process, how to code, and advanced skills as the competition progresses. Advanced functionality shows the Java code behind the code blocks, allowing students to begin to learn Java. The first two phases of the competition, Boot Camp and Qualifiers are virtual competitions. Students compete individually, collecting score and participation points for their school’s team. Teams that meet high participation ratios or numbers or accumulate the most average points per CRCC Guidelines/Rules, will receive invitations to the in-person Finals. Teams of two (2) students will represent each school. Parents, educators, students and community leaders are welcome to come and encourage the contestants. Educators can receive Professional Development credits and may compete with students or against one another.
