Welcome to the home of NEOFRA, the Northeast Ohio FIRST Robotics Alliance, a partnership of FIRST robotics teams in the Youngstown-Warren, Ohio region. 

        Our member FRC teams hold many fundraisers throughout the year in support of their robotics programs.  We post notice of these events to our NEOFRA Calendar.  Teams have numerous events scheduled in the coming months.  Feel free to click the Calendar link and check them out!

The 2018 Mahoning Valley Robotics Challenge will be held Saturday JUNE 30th, 2018 at Austintown Middle School in Austintown, OH.  Team Registration and Volunteer Registration are NOW OPEN.  Click here for more MVRC information!


NEOFRA teams design and build robots to compete in one of four different levels of yearly robotics competitions facilitated by the non-profit FIRST organization.
 Our shared mission "is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership."


NEOFRA will once again host a charity food drive at the 2018 MVRC to benefit the Second Harvest Food Bank of the Mahoning Valley.  Teams and spectators may donate food in support of this great cause!  Stay tuned for more details on how you may contribute.
