About this Event
Open HouseQueen City Robotics Alliance
QCRA is hosting an Open House event to introduce students and parents to FIRST robotics programs . We promote mentor-based programs that build science, engineering, and technology skills, inspire innovation, and foster well-rounded life skills including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.
Teams runs like a business where students learn through hands-on experience and mentor by professionals. Our robotics teams participate in FIRST Robotics events with other teams from across NC and globally.
This event is open to all middle and high school students, families, and volunteers in the Charlotte area. No prior experience is necessary.
