Robofest is a variety of competitions and events with autonomous robots – programmed to act independently and not remote-controlled – that encourages students to have fun while learning principles of physical science, computer science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), Computer Science, and Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). Students design, construct, and program the robots. Adult coaches are not allowed to assist during the events.
