Lilly Richards and Steven Raphael won the World Championship in Robofest 2018 Senior Game on Saturday, May 19, 2018 at Lawrence Technological University. Here is an amazing video showing their robot in action during the competition. VIDEO
Middle School students, Kennedy, Jameson, and Nick competed in the Junior Game, seen here with their coach, Wendy Mayer.
The Robofest Game competition differs from others because the robots are not remote controlled. Each robot must be programmed to autonomously find its own way around the playing field and complete game tasks during a two-minute round. The teams must adapt the robot to accomplish new, unknown tasks with just one-half hour of programming and practice before each round.

Teams from all around the world were in this competition, second place went to a team from Nova Scotia, Canada: third to a team from Seoul, Korea; fourth from Novi, Michigan; and fifth place in the Senior Game was from Atlacomulco, Mexico.
This competition concludes Roeper competitive robotics for this school year, but a summer camp session will be conducted by Wendy Meyer, the Middle School robotics coach. Upper School interested can find out more by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
