Our mission is to create an all inclusive community where students in the coming generation are inspired to pursue their passions, gain a of love of learning and knowledge through experience, and kindle personal growth in areas such as leadership, self confidence, and communication, through mentor supported individual and group achievement in the fields of science and technology.
In early January, FIRST releases the new season's challenge. From that day, known as Kickoff, students have six weeks to strategize, design, build, program, and assemble their robot. Students work up to 35 hours a week, on top of normal school and homework responsibilities. Almost everything is done in Ithaca High School by students with the support of mentors.
Code Red attends two competitions each year. Traditionally, Code Red attends the Finger Lakes Regional in Rochester, NY, in addition to one other regional competition.

Code Red Robotics would not be possible without the guidance and support of community mentors. Community members from local businesses, parents, and other supporters of the team give countless hours by supporting and guiding students, lending expertise, and helping the team function. If you are interested in helping Code Red, please visit the contact page and email the team president and faculty adviser. Many of these mentors have been with Code Red for years. Thank you mentors!
