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.

GRAF is open to student teams from 4th through 12th grade. Judges decide winners for each division:

  • Jr. Arts Division: 4th ~ 8th grades

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

The fourth annual GRAF will be held during the World Championship Event in St. Pete Beach, FL on Saturday, June 3, 2017 

Find out more information about the previous GRAF competition's here: Prior Years

Each team member, as well as the coach and other adult volunteers, must bring the signed Robofest Consent and Release Form on the day of the event.

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

Robotic Performing Arts (Some ideas and example videos)

Robotic Visual Arts (Just some ideas. Note that some examples here do not use sensors, which are required for GRAF)
