2017 Nebraska & Iowa Online Challenge Entries

The mission for Robotics in Nebraska is to develop critical Science, Technology, Engineering and Math skills.  These skills will prepare our students to succeed in a future job environment that will be very different from what we see today.

Robotics competitions have been a effective way to engage students and get them interested in developing these skills, but it isn’t the only method.  We encourage many other activities that develop our students, including judged presentations and online challenges.  This year, the Robotics Education and Competition Foundation ran eleven different Online Challenges that spotlighted different skill sets for students to work on.
