Tiresias Technologies believes that US FIRST Robotics represents an important investment in our efforts to develop engineers and scientists for a new generation. To that end we directly sponsor and provide mentors to the same.
The competition, promoted by innovator Dean Kamen, is an international program to challenge youth in a technical venue. Teams are given six weeks to design and test a robot to win the competition. The nature of the competition is kept secret till the kick-off day so the ability to manage time & resources is a big part of the project. Tiresias Technologies is proud to provide financial support and technical expertise to the students.
