Group 1001 and Indy Women in Tech Sponsor the Indiana Robotics State Championship

Group 1001 and Indy Women in Tech (IWiT) were proud to sponsor the Indiana Robotics State Championship on March 23 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The competition is the largest state championship in the country, gathering 354 robotics teams from elementary, middle, and high schools across the state with 10,000 people in attendance.

Joe Hogsett, Mayor of Indianapolis, and Dr. Katie Jenn, Indiana Secretary of Education, kicked off the event. Throughout the day, teams participated in three different components of the competition: judges’ awards, tournament/teamwork competition, and skills challenge. More than 2,000 students participated with 43 percent being girls! As a result, 94 Indiana robotics teams are now eligible to compete in the VEX Robotics World Championship.

“For the past five years, Group 1001 and IWiT have sponsored the Indiana Robotics State Championship to support the STEM development of Indiana’s youth,” said Jessica Maginn, Senior Marketing & Communications Specialist with IWiT. “These incredible children are tomorrow’s leaders and it’s extremely rewarding to watch their passion and energy during this competition.”

Group 1001 is committed to creating positive change and taking part in building future leaders in technology. Many employees from the organization volunteered at the event by setting up, hosting a free photo booth, taking professional photos, entertaining VIPs, and handing out swag.
