The Cyber Robotics Coding Competition (CRCC) is an online tournament for students of all levels to participate in and learn about STEM, coding, robotics, and technology career paths. CRCC enables teachers, schools, and districts to engage students with technology and develop STEM awareness while they compete in the gamelike competition. Powered by CoderZ, an online STEM education program using virtual robots, the tournament is cloud-based, can be accessed from any computer, and uses simulations of virtual 3D robots that perform complex tasks and missions. By learning to program and strategizing their virtual robot to participate, students compete within their class, grade, school, district, and state to progress to the finals. Schools can participate for a modest fee that includes engagement in the tournament over six weeks (bootcamp, competition, and qualifiers); three hours of teacher orientation and training; class, school, and state leaderboards; in-school finals; finals participation; and awards and prizes for champions.
