Robotics Education & Competition Foundation
Online Challenges

Students age 13 and older may create an account and submit an entry.  Students under 13 should have a coach or parent/guardian create an account and submit the entry.

Here at the Robotics Education & Competition (REC) Foundation, we see a future where all students design and innovate as part of a team, experience failure, persevere, and embrace STEM. These lifelong learners emerge confident in their ability to make the world a better place. 

As part of that mission, we offer Online Challenges to encourage students from around the World to continue learning beyond the competition field!

Participants expand on STEM skills, stay engaged with their teams, and showcase their work through a variety of Online Challenges submission topics; building valuable workforce readiness skills like time management, project management, research, CAD design, graphic design, video production, documentation, and community engagement.

Online Challenges are open to registered REC Foundation Competition Teams from elementary school through college. Students submit challenges, compete for top prizes, and gain experience and recognition they can take with them into their future careers.

We can’t wait to see this season’s inspirational submissions from teams across the globe.

Email onlinechallenges@roboticseducation.org with any questions.
