Regional Workshops

Hands-On Workshop

The Botball season begins with a 2-day professional development workshop for team leaders, mentors and students. Up to 3 people from each registered team may attend the regional workshop. During the hands-on workshop, attendees learn about current robotics technology by participating in a variety of interactive exercises and activities.

Those activities include:

  • Robotics as an inquiry-based educational tool
  • A real-world programming language
  • Engineering skills in building a working demo bot
  • Current components in the Botball kit and game challenge

Any 3 participants can attend the workshop (ex. Team leader and 2 students or team leader, mentor, student). At the workshop you will:

Receive Your Reusable Robotics Kit

Teams receive their reusable robotics kit at the workshop along with software and documentation. They also receive detailed information regarding the current year's game. Participants will actually use their robotics kit to build and program a demonstration robot at the workshop.
