Host An Event
Remember it can be everything from bringing a robot to the library, to a demo at the science center, to a huge robot carnival! We just want to share the excitement of robotics around the US. If you hosted an event for 2016, thanks for joining us and please tell us about your event here.

IEEE Robot Challenge
Baltimore Museum of Industry
The Robot Challenge is an inexpensive team project designed to engage High School students in a two to four month activity which closely resembles the work a graduate engineer would be doing in the "real world".
Depending on the level of challenge students and teachers seek, they build 2 leg or 4 leg walking robots from scratch, decorate them, teach them to walk and climb hurdles, and complete with other teams while operating them either manually or autonomously, using open loop or closed-loop-feedback control.
Students are also graded on writing reports and making presentations.
Main event will be held in Baltimore, MD, Sunday, April 23, 2017, and a smaller event will be held there Saturday, April 22. Similar events will also be held in Lincroft, NJ on April 22, 2017, and on May 6, 2017 in Galloway, NJ.
