Meet the Pandas:

The Tuxedo Pandas are based in Christiansburg and Blacksburg, Virginia. We are students in 7th- 11th grade Montgomery County Public Schools.  We meet regularly to build robots and promote STEM throughout the New River Valley.

For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology (FIRST) 
Tech Challenge is a global robotics program for middle and high school students.  Experience the power, excitement and fun of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) with hands-on, minds-on activities - all with robots!

Tuxedo Pandas are a program of the New River Robotics Association, an approved non-profit 501(c)(3) organization chartered to promote STEM through the use of robotics and engineering outreach in the New River Valley of Virginia.
