Invitation to Robofest

 

Robofest is a bit different from other robotics competitions.
-
Teams use 2 autonomous robots to complete their challenge.
- Robot controllers can be any such as Handy Board, Boe-Bots, I-Robo, and Lego RCX as long as one 8-bit microprocessor is used.

- Robots can be built from a variety of materials, if Lego robots are used, teams are not limited to LEGO parts.

- It is not expensive to have a team. Easy to setup and move playing fields.
-
The focus is on programming; a variety of languages can be used. There are mystery elements they won't know until that day. After the unveiling of unknown missions, teams will program their robots to solve the rest of the challenge that morning. Teams who solve the challenge first, receive extra points

- Competitions may limit studentsí creativity. Robofest invites teams to show off their autonomous robotics projects.
