Express Yourself with Robots! Robofest offers a unique STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) learning opportunity using intelligent & interactive robotics with visual and performing arts categories. Robots must have computational components programmed by participants and must employ sensors.

RoboArts (Formerly GRAF) is open to student teams from 5th through 12th grade. Judges decide winners for each division:

  • Jr. Arts Division: 5th ~ 8th grades

  • Sr. Arts Division: 9th ~ 12th grades

The fifth annual RoboArts will be held during the World Championship Event at Lawrence Technological University in Southfield, MI on Saturday, May 19, 2018

The "Arts" category can target performing arts, visual arts or both.  Below are examples of both:
