Robo Challenge

JHRC Image 1


The Johns Hopkins Robo Challenge is a robotic education outreach event that aims to encourage middle and high school students to participate in a hands-on robotic challenge that exposes students to constructing and programming small robots. The goal of this effort is to encourage students into the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math by providing a fun filled day competing with robots. The event is free and open to all middle and high school students. The all-day challenge will have several teams of 2-3 students from various area schools that assemble in a venue in the Homewood campus of Johns Hopkins to let their robots compete against other robots. Robotic kits are loaned out to teams requesting them. The Johns Hopkins student group CISSRS that organizes the Johns Hopkins Robo Challenge event is currently part of the Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics (LCSR). CISSRS is committed to promoting science and technology to the K-12 student population.


In connection with the challenge, the LCSR graduate students also organize a training session for school teachers and student teams. The next training session will be held on Febuary 6, 2016 on the Homewood campus.
