The program is designed to inspire future scientists and engineers ages 9 to 14, who are given six months to design, build and program independent robots. The contest, which featured 96 teams from throughout the state, was judged in four areas: robot performance; project presentation; technical design; and core values.

In Division 1, the RvR Dilemma team from Glen Allen won first place in the Inspiration category, while the 4 Musketeers team from Henrico finished second in the Programming category. In Division 2, The Lost Marbles team from Henrico finished first in the Programming category, while the Rainbow Cows from Henrico finished first in the Innovative Solutions category.
