Build a robot, draw a robot, code a robot with your friends. There are no rules other then to share the excitement of robotics with your friends, family, or community. Share with us how you will be celebrating!
Thanks to a grant from the Martha Holden Jennings Foundation, we are piloting a unique high school course using a NAO H25 Advanced Humanoid Robot from Aldebaran Robotics. Four high school girls, led by senior Lauryn Woodyard, are working with 5th grade science teachers. They have programmed "Henry" NAO to help 5th graders learn about Force & Motion. Henry will "bowl" to illustrate momentum, inertia and friction. He will also accept MatchBox cars from the kids, place them on a ramp, start and time the race, so kids can compute average velocity over several trials.
Our objective, if this inter-generational experiment proves to aid in learning, is to create a network of high schools engaged in similar work. This will allow high school students to collaborate on multi-generational projects across the nation. Imagine: our high school can donate the code for the bowling and ramp races, while obtaining the code from another school for having a NAO robot help teach math, recite Shakespeare, help youngsters with vocabulary, and more.

The National Robotics Challenge is designed to provide students of all ages and levels of study the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of manufacturing processes, controls, robotics and other technologies through competitive engineering contests. Students are judged on their application of technology principles, engineering concepts and their ability to solve real-world problems through a team approach.

Founded by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers in 1986, the National Robotics Challenge is the longest continually operating robotics event in the United States, and is the premier educational ?event for open-platform robotics competition. With entry fees that are low and no mandatory kit to buy, teams have more money to spend on the materials and equipment to build robots.
