The Global Conference on Educational Robotics (GCER), produced by KISS Institute for Practical Robotics, is a professional conference designed for elementary, middle and high school students, their teachers and mentors, technology education professionals, robot enthusiasts, and invited professional guests. The GCER gives attendees the inspiration and experience of a professional conference, encouraging students to further their knowledge, network with other students from around the world and pursue related careers. Teachers and mentors have many opportunities to network, exchange best practices and develop new approaches to STEM education.
In addition to guest speaker sessions, breakout sessions, and an autonomous robotics showcase, GCER also features several autonomous robotics competitions and events. The International Botball Tournament is always a highlight when teams from around the world gather to try their skills at the current year’s Botball game challenge and Junior Botball Challenge. The conference also features the KIPR Open Autonomous Robot Tournament, the KIPR Autonomous Aerial Robot Tournament, and the Junior Botball Challenge.
You are invited to attend the GCER and connect with peers, discuss technology-related ideas, attend educational and thought-provoking sessions, and cheer on your favorite teams at one of the many tournament events.
The Global Conference on Educational Robotics also referred to as GCER, is a combination of the International Botball® Competition, the KIPR Open Tournament, the KIPR Autonomous Aerial Robot Tournament, along with pre-conference workshops, keynote speakers, and much more.
