What's special about the Robot Riot? COACHES PLAY!

Yup, it's your chance, coaches, to get in there and program and build and collaborate with the kids on your team.

All teams must include at least 2 members, and one of those members must be a child between ages 9 and 18! 

More Robotics! Check out SummerITeens at SUNY Poly. Day camps in robotics and other applied math/science adventures. See you there!
