Robo Expo

I’m one of the organizers of the Robo Expo, now in it’s 6th year of offering a kid-friendly, age-appropriate, low-key afternoon of sharing robotics projects and solving programming challenges. Mainly Manhattan independent schools with designated technology classes or afterschool clubs attend the event.

After a 30-minute or so exhibition where kids show off interesting robots or mechanical games or projects, we set up the series of challenges. Here’s a dinosaur from one of the older participants:

There is a “Collect the Cans” area where students gather more cans than their opponents:

There are some line-following mats with differently shaped black lines to challenge the light sensor:

And a “Get Out of the Box” and “Over the Wall” heat as well:
