Robot Alliance

Sponsoring Organization: 
All NM based robot competitions/education programs
Description: 

The Robot Alliance represents all of New Mexico’s robot competitions and education programs. Members of the alliance have agreed to cross-promote all the other competitions and programs, as each offers a unique opportunity to New Mexico students.

The competitions run from late September to early June, allowing academic athletes to participate in multiple “game” days throughout the school year.

Members of the Robot Alliance pursue this shared aim: Students will, through team competition, learn how to design, build, program and test machines to complete tasks and communicate results in a variety of ways.
