The mission of RoboCON is to increase public awareness of 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.
In an effort to make the RoboCON experience as accessible as possible for as many students as possible, RoboCON has grown into two distinct events.
RoboCON Robotics: Our flagship robotics competition, featuring Line Following, and Stacking challenges for students in grades 4-12 within the Concept Schools network. This is a live event that takes place each Spring either in-person in Chicago, or remotely via Zoom from participating schools.
RoboCON Codeathon: A computer science design challenge available to students in grades K-12 through the US. In this entirely virtual and asynchronous event, students work to develop a computer science solution to a real-world issue in just 2 weeks!
