  • EcoBot Challenge, Education Foundation of Harris County

    The EcoBot Challenge is an opportunity for students in grades 5-8 to develop critical problem-solving skills in real-world situations that will help prepare them for 21st century jobs. Teams must integrate math, physics and computer skills from the classroom to design and build robots that perform real-world environmental tasks. The Challenge not only reinforces the skills students learn in school, it shows them how improving those skills could help them lead productive lives.

  • TCEA State Robotics Competitions, TCEA

    The Annual State Robotics Competition hosted by TCEA will be held April 13, 2013, in Deer Park, Texas. TCEA is a non-profit education organization dedicated to helping educators innovate teaching and learning through professional development opportunities and exposure to new and emerging technologies. The goal of the TCEA Robotics Competition is to inspire young people to become science and technology leaders. Robotics is an invaluable resource for teaching science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) skills. It also develops critical thinking, collaboration, and problem solving, along with other 21st century skills such as creativity, imagination, curiosity, innovation, and self-confidence. TCEA provides students with the opportunity to explore robotics by holding 20 Regional competitions that reach rural as well as urban areas throughout the state of Texas. The winning teams from these regional competitions then have the opportunity to compete at the state-level. Advancing to the State Competition will be 180 teams (700 students).

  • Get Excited About Robotics (GEAR) LEGO Robotics Competition, Texas Tech University

    GEAR (Get Excited About Robotics) is a 6-8 week LEGO robotics challenge for elementary and middle school students during which student teams build and program LEGO robots (using the MINDSTORMS NXT kits) to perform specified tasks. To solve the challenge, students learn engineering skills through a teaming exercise in designing, building, programming, testing, and troubleshooting wheeled LEGO robots that perform and compete on an eight foot by eight foot field. This year's competition theme is called Dr. Roboto and on April 20th all participating teams will compete for awards.
