RoboRAVE (Robots Are Very Educational) International aims to make robotics accessible to children.  The organization’s motto is “Today’s Play, Tomorrow’s Pay” and their three goals are Fun while Learning, Sharing, and Teamwork.

During the “a-MAZE-ing” competition, the goal is to design, build and program a robot capable of completing an elevated maze in 2 minutes or less. The faster the team completes the task increases the overall score.

The RoboRave USA was held in Albuquerque, NM in May.
