Competitions are a fun way for both adults and kids to learn quickly. Robotics competitions allow students to dive deep into the world of robotics and explore how computer programming and robot design can solve problems big and small! A robotic competition is an event where robots have to accomplish a task or beat other robots to become the winner.
