Southern California Regional Robotics Forum (SCRRF)
SCRRF was merged into Los Angeles Robotics (LARobotics), a non-profit public benefit corporation, on May 18, 2010. SCRRF is now a division of Los Angeles Robotics and is supervised by the SCRRF Committee. SCRRF's nonprofit tax ID was transferred to Los Angeles Robotics. See the LARobotics home page for more information.
The Southern California Robotics Regional Forum (SCRRF) is a nonprofit association formed by FIRST robotics teams in Southern California. Originating in Chatsworth, the Forum was formed after the 2001 FIRST Robotics Competition season in the spirit of sharing and helping in the FIRST community. It is the goal of SCRRF to provide a way for Southern California teams, both rookies and veterans, to get help and to share opinions so that the experience can be improved for everyone.
SCRRF hosts the Fall Classic and Pre-Bag Scrimmage as well as various workshops to help teams prepare for upcoming competitions. Beside the events and workshops, teams in SCRRF have formed a sense of FIRST community, making their experience so much more enjoyable.
- To inspire and excite young people about the accessibility, fun, and importance of math, science, engineering, and manufacturing;
- To provide a means for community support for additional educational and career awareness endeavors;
To provide training and mentorship for students, teachers, and professional volunteers; and
To provide local robotics competitions and activities for regional schools.

See SCRRF Scholarships for information.
In 2011, Time Warner Cable sponsored two $1,000.00 scholarships for high school seniors who are members of robotics teams in the Los Angeles region. SCRRF also participates in the Connect-A-Million-Minds program sponsored by Time Warner Cable.
