Botball 2013 New England Regional Tournament and 11th Annual Botfest Exhibition
This year's Botball New England Regional Tournament is this Saturday, May 4th, 2013 at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. The scenario for the 2013 competition is a "Mars Sample Return" mission, in which competing teams must build and program their robots to gather, sort, and separate "Mars samples" to be brought back to Earth. Each team's robots must autonomously navigate the arena while gathering objects.
Alongside the Botball competition is Botfest: an exhibition open to students and robot enthusiasts to show off their creations. Botfest will run from 11:00am - 1:30pm this Saturday.
