The event is organized by the Interactive Technology Experience Center (iTEC), a community outreach program in the UTSA College of Engineering. The annual robotics competition is designed to motivate school aged children to get excited about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

The teams spent six weeks at their home schools designing the best robot they can to meet GEAR-themed challenges. This year, the Loma Park Elementary School team Rough Shod took first place in the elementary division, and Leal Middle School's Flux Capacitors took the top prize in the middle school category.
