On Saturday, April 21, 2018, Holy Trinity High School will host Robofest, a national robotics tournament for middle school and high school students, sponsored in conjunction with Lawrence Technical University.
Robofest is a festival of competitions and events with autonomous robots that encourages students to have fun while learning principles of physical science, computer science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), and Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). Students design, construct and program the robots. Robotics kits are allowed in the construction of robots.
At last year's Robofest, more than 20 teams competed in the junior (grades 4-8), and senior (grades 9-12) divisions. Student teams participated in the Game and Exhibition competitions. In the Game competition, students worked to accomplish robotics missions using fully autonomous robots. In the Exhibition competition, which allows students to showcase creative computer programmed robotics.
