Dreher High School, Columbia, South Carolina

Lucky us! The Carolinas' oldest FIRST Robotics Competition off-season event celebrates 13 years!

Teams 1293 (Pandamaniacs) and 2815 (Blue Devil Mechanics) invite you to join us for the thirteenth annual South Carolina Robotics Invitational and Workshops!  SCRIW is a one-day competition, and one of your final opportunities to play CRESCENDO presented by Haas on an official competition field.  Teams come from hours away to introduce their new students to the FIRST experience, try out new robot upgrades, learn new things, and have some more fun with their robots!

(Oh, and the mentor match at the end for charity will be back this year.)

SCRIW is open to all FIRST Robotics Competition teams, regardless of location or district affiliation.

Pricing for SCRIW XIII

We have worked hard to hold the line on pricing for teams to keep SCRIW accessible.

Standard team entry is $400, if payment is postmarked by October 1, 2024.  The entry fee will be $500 for checks postmarked after this date, or for payment received on the day of the event.

B-team entries--teams fielding a second robot--will be $250.  We will not confirm or invoice B-teams until August 1, to ensure teams have adequate opportunity to enter their robot.  It's never been an issue through eleven editions of SCRIW, but we want to do it right.

2025 rookie teams competing with a separate robot compete at no charge.
