The Regional Autonomous Robotics Circuit (RARC) is a series of three robotics competitions for students in grades 2-12. The competitions build upon one another and allow students to showcase their STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) and cyber skills by competing against other students in their division (elementary, middle and high school) in a series of integrated challenges.
