The National WWII Museum Robotics Challenge is an exciting opportunity for 4th through 8th grade students to develop 21st century skills and participate in active problem solving all based on real-life scenarios from World War II. Focused on the enduring themes of innovation, teamwork, community, and cooperation, the robotics program at The National WWII Museum provides a springtime competition opportunity for both established teams and newcomers to the field of student robotics. The Challenge is divided into two components: a tabletop robot competition and a humanities-based team project.

The Robotics Challenge is expanding in 2019! Thanks to a commitment of generous funding by Boeing Corporation, the competition will have four regional qualifying tournaments: Baton Rouge, Lafayette, New Orleans, and the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain. When registering, please indicate the region in which you wish to compete. The top 40 teams from the qualifying tournaments will be invited to the finals at the National WWII Museum on May 11, 2019.

This means that the former restriction of one team per school is eliminated. Your teams will compete with all the others to attend the finals. Registration is still $50, and there is no extra fee if you qualify for the finals. If your team is more than a two-hour drive from a regional, contact to find out how to qualify for the finals.

Robotics Challenge is supported by:

  • Chevron
  • Motorola
  • The Bruce J. Heim Foundation
  • Boeing
