Southern Educational Robotics Conference
ABOUT THE SOUTHERN EDUCATIONAL ROBOTICS CONFERENCE
The Southern Educational Robotics Conference (SERC) has been serving educators and administrators across the Southeast for four years, providing a space for the robotics community to collaborate and learn together. Initially founded as VEX Robotics Conference, SERC became the first and only multi-platform educational robotics conference in the country in 2020, seeing the need to expand beyond a single platform beyond a single platform and allow teachers from all backgrounds and situations to come together around the shared evolution of educational robotics regardless of what platforms teachers and administrators have available. SERC now hosts a diverse group of educators of many backgrounds that share both general concepts to be used in education across platforms as well as deeper dives into implementing specific platforms into your school's curriculum.

SERC became the only educational robotics conference in the country to shift the focus away from a single platform and welcome participants to learn about more broad topics as well as implementation of multiple specific platforms in the same space.
