The Oakland County Competitive Robotics Association is a full-contact robotics competition; students build and control 120 pound robo-gladiators to place balls or achieve other goals while opponents try to stop them.

OCCRA generates enthusiasm for technical and academic disciplines such as design, engineering, physics and electronics, providing recognition and encouragement for students. OCCRA participants not only learn practical applicable knowledge, but also the skills of working collaboratively in groups, teamwork, good sportsmanship, and quick thinking on their feet.

Unlike the FIRST robotics competition program, OCCRA robots are entirely student designed and built. The rules of the competition allow for and encourage corporation partnerships but will not allow precise machining or processes that cannot be carried out in the schools.
