(Click to see more pictures on RoboPlay Challenge Competition.)

RoboPlay Competition is an annual culminating event for the C-STEM program. It is organized to build public awareness and advocate for hands-on integrated computing and STEM education for K-14 students. The event brings the C-STEM community together to organize RoboPlay Challenge Competition in various regions on C-STEM Day on a Saturday by the end of May each year to further engage students in project-based team activities and to showcase their accomplishments and creativity.

Both RoboPlay Challenge Competition and RoboPlay Video Competition are designed to support K-12 core academic content and standards.

Various C-STEM awards and scholarships are presented at the awards ceremonies to recognize students’ achievements and inspire them to pursue computing and STEM-related careers and post-secondary study. The awards include
