The NASA Swarmathon is a challenge to develop cooperative robotics to revolutionize space exploration. Students will be challenged to develop search algorithms for robotic swarms. Swarmathon participation will:  (1) improve student’s skills in robotics and computer science and (2) further advance technology for future NASA space exploration missions.

The 2017 competitions will be from April 18 to April 20.
