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.
Since 2000, over 20,000 students have competed in Robofest, including teams from 15 United States and the countries of Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, Egypt, England, Ecuador, France, Ghana, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Korea, Lebanon, Macau, Mexico, Morocco, Romania, Singapore and South Africa.
