Occurring after the FIRST Championship, the event gives Philadelphia teams one more opportunity to compete before the end of the school year. The winning teams at RoboJawn earn the title of Philadelphia Robotics Champion.  Teams have a few months between their qualifiers and RoboJawn to continue work on their machines, code, and projects — often in a lower stress, slower pace manner than the race to the qualifier. This makes the springtime a great time for continued learning and team building.

NOTE: For the 2024 season, all teams, regardless of location, are encouraged to attend. If you’re nearby, please join us for this event!
