It is our pleasure to cordially invite you to attend the GEAR Robotics tournament hosted by iTEC with the College of Engineering at the University of Texas at San Antonio! We are committed to a quality experience for students, coaches, referees, and judges and are working diligently to create a memorable tournament. The GEAR tournament will be held on October 12, 2013 at the UTSA Convocation Center.
The competition date is quickly approaching and registration will be open from September 2-13, 2013. Registration is first come; first serve for the first 75 teams. Registration is limited to one elementary and one middle school team per school. The registration fee is $50 for each team. All paperwork and payment must be completed to be eligible to compete.
Due to university activities and some scheduling issues, there will be no GEAR kickoff meeting held at UTSA. The game will be distributed after registration and payment is confirmed by iTEC. Each team is required to have an engineering notebook detailing the processes of building their robot for the game. Engineering notebooks must accompany teams on October 12, the day of the competition. They must be in a composition notebook, preferably quad-ruled. The format for the engineering notebook is available at the following link as a PowerPoint file: http://goo.gl/7l6c1B.
