Robofest South Africa
Vanderbijlpark; South Africa

RoboParade is an exciting autonomous robotics activity for students in grades 4-12, providing the opportunity for them to engage in STEM activities through the design, construct, and programming of robots. The parade features robot floats constructed and programmed by student participants. Attendees of the parade will be able to see fully autonomous robot floats that follow the parade route while detecting other robots in front of them.

The robot floats are programmed to stop and start without human help.

It is a great STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) learning opportunity for young students. Videos of the previous parades can be found on the RoboParade home page at www.robofest.net/roboParade.htm.
