Lawrence Technical Offers Support to Homeschoolers for RoboFest
Robofest, a global robotics competition based out of Lawrence Technological University in Southfield, MI, is opening a new competition site this year at Schoolcraft College in Livonia. The competition date is Saturday, March 5th, from 1 to 5 PM.
Robofest would like to see 5 Senior Game teams and 5 Senior Exhibition teams compete at this site. As an incentive, the Robofest office is willing to loan robots for FREE and provide FREE technical training to any teams registered at this site. (Registration cost is $50/team with teams consisting of 2 to 7 members. There is no additional site fee to compete at Schoolcraft.)
This offer is specifically to high school homeschoolers – many who have competed quite successfully in this competition – and have found Robofest to be an excellent inspiration to stimulate science, technology, engineering and math education in their home. Coaches do not have to be experts in robotics – just willing to meet regularly with their team and provide access to the technical support their students may need. Technical training will be scheduled at the Lawrence Tech campus with interested teams.
All details regarding the competition can be found at www.robofest.net.
There will be a Kick-Off meeting via webinar on January 8th at 4pm. For more information and details, please contact:
