Event Description
Robotic Idol is a robotic dance programming competition for grades 6-12. The goal of the competition is to bring Art to STEM Education by developing a series of dance behaviors for an autonomous, humanoid robot, named NAO. Students will work in small teams to program three dance behaviors that will be loaded into NAO and will be judged by a point system based on their creativity, programming skills, and teamwork.

NAO comes equipped with an easy-to-use, graphical, programming software (Choregraphe) that allows students to create different behaviors and is perfect for students of all skill levels. Whether students are beginners or advanced programmers, they will learn to combine gestures, movement, sound, music, and possibly speech.
Prizes will be given to the winners!
