Share the News

SD2The Johns Hopkins Robo Challenge is a low-pressure, low-cost competition for middle and high school students. Teams of 2-3 students must build small robots that can compete in up to five different events. Students learn the basic electronic and programming skills necessary for enabling a robot to perform tasks like obstacle avoidance and maze navigation. A highlight for this annual competition is the robot dance event where teams program their robots to move in sync with music. Historically teams have come from all over Maryland and the surrounding states and can be part of a school class, club, or just a group of friends.


On April 4th there will be a help session where teams can get help from graduate students in robotics. There will be a practice course for each challenge to allow competitors to get a feel for the actual competition. The competition will take place on May 2nd in the Glass Pavilion at Johns Hopkins Homewood campus.
