Welcome to the West Virginia Robotics Alliance

What is the WV Robotics Alliance?

NASA’s Robotic Alliance Project consists of members from across government and education dedicated to the promotion of robotics through competitions. The Robotic Alliance mission is to create a human, technical, and programmatic resource of robotics capabilities to enable the implementation of future robotic space exploration missions.

The WV Robotics Alliance is located at the NASA Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) Program in Fairmont, WV and supports robotic competitions, off-season events, and trainings across the state. At this time, any interested students, educators, coaches, mentors, or sponsors are encouraged to engage in the currently supported robotics initiatives in West Virginia including Junior FIRST LEGO® League, FIRST LEGO® League, FIRST Tech Challenge, FIRST Robotics Competition, VEX IQ, VEX Robotics Competition, Vex U, Skills USA, and Zero Robotics. Links to these programs and NASA’s Robotics Alliance are in the menu above. Please direct questions or inquiries to erc@ivv.nasa.gov or call 304-367-8438.

This site is not funded, designed, or maintained by NASA. The site is a collaborative effort of volunteers, educators, and students who are involved with robotics programs in WV.
