The Robotics Inventors Club All Stars
‘Start your own Robotics Company’ Competition
The Robotics Inventors Club All Stars competition is the first of its kind business/technology innovation competition, where children (elementary ages thru middle school ages) face off in a ‘shark tank’ style pitch and demo competition. The theme this year is to design and build a robot to address childhood obesity, developing something that will encourage a child to get outside and exercise while providing the gaming component that entices children.
The teams spent the last 8 months building their robots and their businesses around their project and are set to square off, head to head later this month. This program was announced last year under the President’s call to ‘Educate to Innovate’ and Infamous Robotics LLC, the designers of this competition and unique STEAM curriculum, are pleased to offer the public an insight into the future of STEM education and robotics innovation.
