RoboWeek is coming!

The official press release came out today: the second annual National Robotics Week starts in a month! We’ll be celebrating April 9-17 with events around the US.*

2010 was our inaugural year, and we had over 50 affiliated events in 21 states, DC and Puerto Rico, with over 46,000 people participating. Many thanks to Adafruit for being an early supporter last year! This year we have over 40 events scheduled so far, which means we’re well on our way to smashing last year’s numbers.

And this is where you come in: We’d like to invite all of you to get involved: come out to a RoboWeek event or host your own.  Are you a bot-builder? Consider entering our Instructables contest! We also have activities for K-12 students.

You can stay up to date by visiting our Facebook page , following us on Twitter under @roboweek , or by checking out what’s trending under #roboweek.

* The astute among you will notice that technically it’s longer than a week. We basically grabbed the second full week in April plus the weekends on either side…but “National Robotics Week and Two Days” doesn’t have the same ring to it.

Edited 3/10 to fix contest link.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. What was the contest link again? I think the link is broken.

  2. My apologies! I’ve fixed the link in the post, it should be:
