The Mid-Atlantic Robotics Showdown (MARS) is a one-day, off-season competition sponsored by Mid-Atlantic Broadband Communities Corporation. The goal is to offer up to 25 FRC teams from within our surrounding localities, the Southwest District, and northern North Carolina, the opportunity to develop and build a stronger network within the SOVAR alliance; encourage teams to test their robot and get hands-on experiences prior to competition season; and to showcase STEM education and related fields found in Southern Virginia.
The inaugural MARS Competition was held in November 2017 at Tunstall High School in Pittsylvania County, Virginia. Plans are underway for the 2018 event. For more information, visit www.marscompetition.org >
