Since 2015, SVRTC has partnered with Mid-Atlantic Broadband Corporation (MBC) to support robotics in southside Virginia. Through this partnership, MBC has been able to establish funding for new SVRTC teams and helped form the Southern Virginia Robotics (SOVAR). SOVAR is an alliance of FIRST robotics teams across Southern Virginia. The goals of the alliance are to share resources, build camaraderie, and encourage the growth of K-12 robotics programs in our region.
Details regarding SVRTC’s partnership and mentoring support for the current FIRST Robotics Program teams can be found on the SOVAR website. Pictures of SVRTC’s support for FIRST Robotics in southside Virginia can be found in, Robotics Gallery.
