Having an 8 year old boy has opened my eyes to the world of legos and robotics. So I decided he can get his athletic conditioning from sports and learn critical thinking skills from Legos/Robotics. Just like the Olympics being the event for the top athletes around the world to compete, RoboGames (ROBOlympics) is the event that brings “ best minds from around the world to compete in over 70 different events. Combat robots, walking humanoids, soccer bots, sumo bots, and even androids that do kung-fu. Some robots are autonomous, some are remote controlled – but they’re all cool!” The website also lists the event as: The Best Ten North American Geek Fests – Wired Magazine and SportCenter’s Top Ten – ESPN SportsCenter.
