(2) Inaugural GRAF (Global Robotic Arts Festival)

Express yourself with robots! The inaugural GRAF organized by LTU Robofest office will be held on Nov 22~23 at Macomb Community College. The event will include the 8th annual RoboParade, as well as Robot Dance Competition, and Exhibitions of Interactive Kinetic Arts and Sculptures. For more details, please visit www.robofest.net .

 

(3) Seeking Site Hosts for 2013~14 Competitions

Robofest provides unique opportunities to maximize math and science learning through autonomous robotics. However, in contrast to other big robotics competitions, it does not require teams to hold major fundraisers to underwrite the cost of participation. Robofest is now seeking site hosts for the 2013~14 Competition Season. RoboParade hosting opportunities in the fall 2013 are open. Hosting opportunities for Robofest Game and Exhibition in Feb ~ early April of 2014 are also open. Interested individuals, organizations, or schools should contact Robofest office at robofest@ltu.edu or check out www.robofest.net and click on *For Site Hosts* link.
