PanelTEK Sponsors Robotics Competition

PanelTEK has been a proud supporter of RoboRiot since its “Rookie Year” in 2010. Unfortunately, the 2020 competition scheduled for March 19-22 at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee was canceled due to the spread of COVID-19.

Typical competitions involve upwards of 50 Teams worldwide. In years past, the RoboRiot Teams consistently finished toward the top. The RoboRiot Team thoroughly enjoys the learning experience that comes from developing new designs, creative programming, and fabrication of the robots.

RoboRiot Team Inspires Others With Their Grace

The essence of the competition itself is clearly not lost on the RoboRiot Team. Regardless of their finish, they are consistently recognized for and awarded “FIRST Team Spirit” and “FIRST Gracious Professionalism,” awards. The excitement and enthusiasm they bring to their matches are contagious, and they make the event an enjoyable experience for everyone involved.
