RoboGames Event Schedule and Rules

The 16th annual games will be held Thu-Sun, April 18-21, 2024. First, second, and third places finishers in all categories receive medals (gold, silver, or bronze respectively).

Robots that don't fit into a specific category can enter "Best of Show" which can be any kind of robot doing anything. Junior League events are specifically set-up for robot builders under 18. "Entry Fees" are the cost to compete, not the cost for an audience ticket.

Entry Fees include a limited number of team members (generally 1 person per robot.) Registration does not come with an unlimited number of crew passes, nor does it automatically guarantee admission. All registrations subject to passing individual safety and qualification standards. There is an an additional cost for team members beyond the limit shown in the list below.

All medal ceremonies immediately follow the end of the final event.
