Robofest® is Lawrence Technological University’s world-wide robotics program for students in 4th - 12th grade. Student teams design, 构造, and program their autonomous robots to compete for trophies in a variety of competitions. Robofest’s mission is: to generate excitement & interest among young people for Science, 技术, 工程, 艺术, and Mathematics (STEAM), AI and Computer Science; to develop essential skills such as teamwork, creative thinking, communication and problem solving; and to prepare them to excel in higher education and technological careers.
Small student teams can design, 构造, and program the robots using any robotics kit and programming language. There are 8 engaging competition categories, some with fixed rules and unknown factors, and others in which students have complete freedom to show off any creative robotic R&D项目.
