The All-Earth Ecobot Challenge is an innovative engineering competition that engages fifth through eighth grade students in complex problem-solving, while developing critical thinking skills and elevating their confidence in formulating solutions to real-world missions.

Ecobot Challenge
May 16, 2015
Hall E, NRG Park



Each Ecobot team should make plans to attend at least 1 Build-It Day this fall. Build-It Days focus on building and developing robotic programming and engineering skills. Teams will go home having a high level of robotics skills giving them a practical application to use during their practices before focusing on the specific game table missions.

Built-It Days are FREE but you must register below!

Build-It Days will feature multiple stations, fun and learning for all levels, where teams will spend time at such stations like:

  • Robot Non-Autonomous Maze (finely tune non-sensory navigation skills necessary for game board maneuvering)
  • Sensory Overload Autonomous Maze (Using sensors to navigate a maze)
  • Attached to Engineering (Using arm attachments for manipulation)
  • Battle Bots (Using blue-tooth remote technology to battle robots)


When the 2015 Game Missions are revealed in January, Practice Days focus on game specific learning using robotic programming and engineering skills. Students will practice and collaborate with other teams while learning the new challenges. Teams will go home having an understanding of the game rules, table set up, and point strategies in preparation for Challenge Day. Late spring Practice Days will also include practice scoring rounds.

Practice Days for the Spring 2015

  • January 17 – Houston ISD
  • January 31 - TBD
  • February 7 - Cy-Fair ISD
  • February 28 - TBD
  • March 7 - TBD
  • April 11 - Channelview ISD
