The objective for this year’s game challenge reflects the love for red or green chili peppers in the Desert Southwest.

The Botball Educational Robotics Program engages middle and high school aged students in a team-oriented robotics competition, and serves as a perfect way to meet today’s new common core standards.

By designing, building, programming, and documenting robots, students use science, engineering, technology, math, and writing skills in a hands-on project that reinforces their learning.

Students are exposed to an inquiry-based, learn-by-doing activity that appeals to their hearts as well as their minds. Botball addresses our nation’s need for a well-prepared, creative, yet disciplined workforce with leadership and teamwork experience.
