WHAT IS IT?
Eurobot is an international robotics competition, open to young people, either in student projects, in university groups or in science clubs.
The main objective of this event is to foster in young people the passion for technology, through new annual challenges, so that they can put into practice their creativity, teamwork, knowledge of robotics and ingenuity.
The annual competition is held in Europe, where two national teams come, if there are more than two teams per country, a national competition is held, where the two teams will compete in the international competition on behalf of Spain.
The main characteristic of the Eurobot regulation is that the robots built are autonomous.
Each year the theme of the competition is changed, so there are new tasks to be done.
Therefore, we must know what tasks have to be done in the field of play and make a first design of how to approach them and how they would be carried out.
The group of young people must design, build and program the robot so that it obtains the highest possible score in each test.
The Eurobot contest highlights values such as fair play, solidarity, the exchange of knowledge and creativity.
It is a very enriching experience, since it is a competition between several countries, you learn other languages and cultures, so you will find a friendly and intercultural environment.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE
A team is created between 2 and 10 people, where each person or group of people are dedicated to a specific task.
Participants must register on this website indicating their names, studies they have made or are doing and contact information. Knowing the regulations, the tasks to be performed are addressed and the robot is designed.
With a first design, you can build and program a first version, which will be polished and improved until it is the final version.
The team has to know the regulations and specifications, to be able to tackle all the tasks and know the restrictions.
You must perform a task planning according to the members of the group and manage time appropriately.

In addition to the realization of the robot, the exhibition of how the project has been carried out and how the tasks, the time, the funding, etc. have been taken into account ...
In a first contact, the teams must record a video explaining who they are and how they are doing the robot.
In addition, the day of the competition asks for a poster in size A1 where it should be detailed:
- Name of the team
- Team members names
- What tasks will be carried out of the possible ones in the field of play
- How they were made (through an image and a short explanatory text)
- Organizations or partners that have collaborated with the team
