Robotics of Vermillion (ROV)

An inclusive, non-profit youth robotics program aimed at offering an educational experience at no-cost to school-aged children from 3rd grade through high school. Participants use science, technology, engineering, math, and teamwork skills as they build and code their own robots for competition.

ROV is not affiliated with any school or other organization.  Our participants come from local Vermillion schools and also home schools.
