RoboFest & the RoboParade Competition 2019 is a fabulous competition for STEM students.

Robofest is a festival of competitions and events with autonomous robots that encourages students to have fun while learning principles of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) and Computer Science. Students design, construct, and program the robots. Any robotics kits are allowed in the construction of robots. Robots can be programmed with any programming language. Robofest programs support Computer Science for All.

RoboParade is a parade of autonomous robotic floats where students show off their designs and creativity! It is a fun and motivating event to promote cooperation, harmony, and creativity.  Great competition for rookies and advanced teams.
