Enhance science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education through ACADEMIC COMPETITION.
RoboRAVE International for any kid, from anywhere, ages 8 and up (including Big Kids – anyone beyond HS)
What: a competition for teams of 2 to 4 students who have designed, built and programmed an autonomous robot. It’s New Mexico’s largest student robotics competition! Our goals: 1) Fun while Learning, 2) Sharing, and 3) Teamwork — winning is secondary.
For: any kid, 8 years old and up, from anywhere in the world. The teams play in one of four divisions:
- Elementary School (grades 3-5);
- Middle School (grades 6-8);
- High School (grades 9-12); AND
- Big Kids (anyone beyond High School)
