What makes Robofest programs unique?

Look Mom, No Hands!: Students must fully program their robots to perform their missions without human assistance. No joysticks or remote controls are allowed.

Your Mission, If You Decide to Accept It: Is (partly) unknown or dynamic. Students must program their robots to accomplish tasks in a dynamic environment.

Students Rule: While adult mentorship is encouraged, students design, construct and program the robots, and adult coaches are not allowed to assist during the competition.

It's Flexible: Any type of robot kit, materials, actuators, and sensors are allowed. Robots can be programmed with any programming language.

Affordable: Team registration is $30 ~ $50 per team. Reusing parts and old kits is encouraged. Teams can be formed by any organization, school, home schools, clubs or civic group.

Everyone is Recognized: All registered participants receive personalized medals and certificates. Winners of the qualifying and championship rounds receive trophies. Top teams in the World Championship senior division receive $2,000 LTU renewable scholarships.
