We are a robotics community preparing students for today’s workforce. We recognize the importance of STEM education in Adventist schools. We know that students involved in our programs learn much more than robotics. They learn marketing, time-management, communication skills, and creative problem-solving in a fun and engaging way. Adventist Robotics was started in 2004 and operates FIRST™ robotics tournaments and STEM engagements across the United States for students in Pre-K thru 12th grade.
Adventist Robotics is sponsored by the Office of Education at the North American Division and the Florida Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.

Adventist Robotics Cancelation Policy
The decision to reschedule or cancel an event is not undertaken lightly. The situations most likely to cause this include, but are not limited to:
- Severe weather conditions
- Exceptional circumstances (including extended power outage, loss of heating/air conditioning, loss of water, fire, natural disasters, etc.)
- Significant illness that might involve the closing of a facility prior to an event.
Adventist Robotics and the event host will determine if there will be a delay, early dismissal, or cancellation of the event. Cancellation of the event will be announced in the emails sent to the team’s main and alternate contacts as designated in the team’s registration with FIRST and on the Adventist Robotics Facebook and Twitter pages. If a tournament is canceled, advancement slots will be decided by lottery. Registration fees will not be returned to the teams as they have already been used to purchase materials for the event.
[…] Adventist Robotics’ website states its history and mission: “The Adventist Robotics League is sponsored by the Office of Education at the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists and is a US FIRST Affiliate Partner. The Adventist Robotics League was started in 2002 by a group of educators led by Mel Wade. Its goal is to inspire students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and to provide unique academic and social skill learning opportunities through robotics in Adventist schools across North America. The Adventist Robotics League operates a number of FLL Qualifying Tournaments across the United States and one FLL Championship Tournament each year. The Adventist Robotics League looks forward to continued growth and expansion in both the elementary focused FLL and FIRST Tech Challenge for high school students.” […]
