The 14th RoboBoat Competition was held online, due to the in-person event being cancelled as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. With 14 teams representing Egypt, Indonesia, Israel, México and the United States and territories.

While we didn’t have the opportunity to meet in person this year, we stayed engaged and shifted efforts online to highlight and reward teams’ incredible work. We ended the summer with a Virtual Awards Party to announce prizes and gear up for the 2022 competition season. Congratulations to all the RoboBoat 2021 teams!
