This competition has not yet posted any deadlines.

The Botball® Educational Robotics Program engages middle and high school aged students in a team-oriented robotics competition, and serves as a perfect way to meet today’s new common core standards. In Botball, the robots are always autonomous! Botball gives students the tools to develop sophisticated strategies using artificial intelligence with embedded systems. Students will learn to program their robots in advance using C, C++, and Java and then compete in tournaments to see how their robots perform against others.

Teams of students must build an autonomous Botball robot and program it using code they write, to compete in a specific Botball challenge field. The teams then take their robots to the tournaments to see if their autonomous robot can outperform others!

Robots are scored based on tasks unique to each year's competition theme.
