The mission of the RoboCON is to increase public awareness in STEM. We believe that every student has the potential to shine in science, technology, math, and engineering; therefore, we encourage students to share their experiences, talents, and abilities with others through this unique platform. RoboCON is a robotic sumo contest, two autonomous robots attempt to push each other out of a circular arena using mechanisms, cunning, and brute force. We welcome your participation and support in this year’s event.
