Robotics Festival


Local teams show off their creativity and robot making skills before shipping the robots to the regional and national competitions. Come watch several large robots try to maneuver around obstacles, dunk balls into goals, balance on the Dangerous Bridge, and rescue each other. Many smaller robots from the UW and Seattle Robotics Society will be showing off in between matches. See robotic sumo wrestling, soccer, maze maneuvering, and more.
