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.
2021 Season - Infinite Recharge at Home
The 2021 game is Infinite Recharge at Home, a continuation of last years season. Robots compete to put power cells into a port and also score points by using a control panel, and getting on the generator switch. It is in an alliance format where 3 red robots compete against 3 blue robots. The animation below summarizes the game.
2021 Season - Game Design Challenge
The second part of the 2021 season is the Game Design Challenge, where as a team, we design a possible game that would work in the FIRST robotics competitions. The team will need to make a map of the arena, how scoring works, the game manual, and many other details about a normal FIRST robotics game.

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!
