(4) Seeking Site Hosts for 2013~14 Competitions

Robofest provides unique opportunities to maximize math and science learning through autonomous robotics. However, in contrast to other big robotics competitions, it does not require teams to hold major fundraisers to underwrite the cost of participation. Robofest is now seeking site hosts for the 2013~14 year. RoboParade hosting opportunities in the fall of 2013 are open. Hosting opportunities for Robofest Game and Exhibition in Feb ~ early April of 2014 are also open. Interested individuals, organizations, or schools should contact Robofest office at [email protected] or check out www.robofest.net and click on *For Site Hosts* link.

(5) Robofest won 1st place at IEEE-USA Video competition

5 minute video summarizing Robofest 2013 is on YouTube at http://youtu.be/QQc-F9XBIPM

IEEE has been sponsoring Robofest participation medals since 2004 now for 10 years! To thank IEEE, we hope you *like* the video. We won 1st place at IEEE-USA Video competition.
