Theme: "Sustainable Nebraska"

This year's Nebraska Robotics Expo on April 2, 2022, will be held virtually over Zoom.

Please check back periodically for additional details.


The fundamental focus of this year's Nebraska Robotics Expo is to facilitate meaningful STEM engagement throughout Nebraska, including to reach additional K-12 and educator populations across Nebraska during this ongoing pandemic. We welcome members of the Greater Nebraska education community as well to join this opportunity as we aim to reach every county with our virtual format this year.

Join us as we explore the relationship between STEAM and Sustainability. From center pivots to the Nebraska National Forest to wind energy farms - Nebraska's sustainability efforts are felt around the state. Through the use of STEAM, your students can help affect the future of Nebraska's sustainability efforts.

This year we are pleased to announce Sponsored STEMKits, and these kits are sponsored for Nebraska students. Each kit includes three hands-on STEM lessons, including all materials. Please see the registration section above to register for your STEMKits.
