Robofest is a festival of competitions and events with autonomous robots that encourages students to have fun while learning principles of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) and Computer Science. Students design, construct, and program the robots. Any robotics kits are allowed in the construction of robots. Robots can be programmed with any programming language.

Robofest has “game” competitions and “exhibition” competitions. Game teams accomplish robotics missions using fully autonomous robots. Exhibition teams have complete freedom to show off any creative computer programmed robotics R&D project.

Game tournaments consist of two rounds.  For each round, the teams are given additional “unknown” tasks that they need to accomplish in addition to the known mission.  They have 30 minutes to work on their robots before running each round.  The winner is determined by the average of the two rounds.  Exhibition teams give a five-minute presentation that is evaluated by a panel of judges according to a published judging rubric.
