  • Innovation First launched in 2007 to serve the educational and competition robotics community. The site is the comprehensive source for the premier robotics competions and list hundreds of competitions, workshops and industry events. The site serves event organizers as a venue to promote their events and even allows them to collect registration fees online.
  • Classroom lab kits are the easy answer for teachers who want to know everything they need to start a program in the classroom. Kits that serve 2-5 students begin at $699.
