Cyber Blue is a key host of the Indiana Robotics Invitational (IRI) and has helped this event grow from 20 teams in 2000 to 72 teams in 2011. Our entire team, including our parent crew, volunteer at this off-season tournament. Working closely with Team 45, the TechnoKats (founders of the IRI), and Team 1024, the Kil-a-Bytes, this event has become both an excellent robotics competition, as well as providing a high level of community support. In 2009, over 100 teams registered for a chance at one of the 72 open positions. Teams from all over the world, including Hawaii, Canada, Israel, and Mexico have competed in this tournament highlighted as the “best of the best.”
The IRI is much more than just a great robotics competition. It also supports the community through programs like “Pack-to-School,” which collects donations of 2nd-grade backpacks filled with school supplies that are sent to local elementary schools, a charity auction of FIRST memorabilia, and college scholarships for graduating seniors.
