ALL SCHOOLS, TEAMS, STUDENTS AND VOLUNTEERS ARE WELCOME!
Robofest is an annual autonomous robotics competition focusing on learning STEM (Science, Engineering, Technology and Math) for students in grades 5 ~ 12. Robofest is affordable and simple. Robofest challenges teams to design, build, and program robots to compete in the following categories in Junior and Senior age divisions:
- Game Competition - A team of students competes to accomplish robotic challenges using autonomous robots.
- Exhibition - Since a game competition with fixed rules may limit students' creativity, Robofest offers a stage for exhibitions to demonstrate their creations. Each team has complete freedom to show off any autonomous robotics project they have created.
- RoboFashion and Dance Show is now included in the Exhibition category.
Any robotics kits are allowed to construct robots.
The Junior division teams are recommended to use an icon-based graphical programming language such as NXTG, Lego(TM) RCX code, EZROBO CREATOR, or Robolab(TM). Recommended grades for this division are 5th-8th.
The Senior Division recommends the use of a text-based high level programming language such as C, C++, C#, Visual Basic, or Java. The challenge is more difficult than that of the Junior Division. Recommended grades are 9th-12th.
