National Robotics Week (RoboWeek) is a series of grassroots events and activities during the month of April aimed at increasing public awareness of the strength and importance of the U.S. robotics industry and of the tremendous social and cultural impact that robotics will have on the future. Activities come in all shapes and sizes from a robot block party, university open house, or a robotics competition. The mission of RoboWeek is simple — to inspire students in STEM-related fields and to share the excitement of robotics with audiences of all ages. Celebrate RoboWeek by hosting an event in your community, sponsoring or attending a local event, or spreading the word on social media.
We welcome events showcasing the excitement of the robotics industry and STEM education. Event audiences range from pre-schoolers to industry professionals and from a few participants to thousands. It's up to you.

Just like robots, events can be of all sizes for all ages. We’ve listed a few of our favorites below. Contact us to help you bring your event to life.
- Show off your team's robot. Were you on a FIRST team? Extend your season and show off all your hard work. Bring your robot to the library, a classroom, or local museum. Invite other students to see what you've done.
- Bring out your group's robots. Did you make a robot for a Scout project? Does your robotics club have an awesome robot? Invite people to a meeting, or bring your robot out in public where people can see it in action.
- Open up your doors. Do you work for a robotics company or attend a university with a robotics program? Host an open house or lab tour and demonstrate your robots. Invite local families, students, or teachers to see what you are creating.
- Host a robot party. Invite local universities, companies, and robot teams to show off their robots. Extend the invite to schools, interested groups, and the general public.
