We attended the RoboFEST 2015 edition which ran from the 31st of July to the 1st of August. Themed Agriculture in the 21st Century”, the event’s challenge was to simulate the planting and harvesting in agriculture using miniature robots assembled from a prepared toolkit.
The RoboFEST Challenge’s 2nd Edition held in Harare recently brought together 8 different teams of students to compete in creating a robot that solved a real problem in agriculture.
This years RoboFEST robotics and automation competition will be held from 31 July to 1 August at Gateway High School. Confidence will be high this in this edition after last years event attracted 10 teams, some from underprivileged backgrounds who designed and built robots after only having learnt how to use a computer 4 weeks before.
