RoboJawn is an off-season event for Philadelphia FIRST Tech Challenge and FIRST LEGO League Challenge teams. 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. RoboJawn will be held as two separate events for the two different programs, each aligned with a larger tech event in Philly.
