About this Event

Save The Date for DPRG's 25th annual autonomous robot contest!

The competition consists of a group of contests that provides opportunities for roboticists of all skill levels a chance to compete. The competition also has specific contests that are exclusively for students and student teams. Prizes are rewarded to the contestants that place in the top 3 positions. The contests are open to the public. Anyone can compete and all are welcome to watch.

Compete for prizes, placement or personal best - or just watch the fun and hang out with folk who build some pretty complex creations.

Student competitions will start promptly at 11am -
Other contests will follow as those complete.

Competitors may arrive early to prepare their robots – the Dallas Makerspace Lecture Hall is reserved as a staging area starting at 10am. Please keep your gear in the Lecture Hall as we expect the competition area (ie. Interactive Classroom) to be crowded.
