Express Yourself with Robots! Robofest offers a unique STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) learning opportunity using intelligent & interactive robotics with visual and/or performing arts categories. Robots must have computational components programmed by participants and must employ sensors.
Update: The Seventh Annual RoboArts will be held during the 2020 Robofest Online World Championship (ROWC) Events scheduled for September 11 (Jr and Sr).
