The All-Earth Ecobot Challenge is an innovative engineering competition that engages fifth through eighth grade students in complex problem solving, while developing critical thinking skills and elevating their confidence in formulating solutions to real-world missions.


Using autonomous robotics and computer technology, Ecobot teams solve simulated challenges in energy exploration, transportation, technological innovation, medical research and environmental sustainability. In addition to sharpening their knowledge of mathematics and physics, Ecobot participants learn valuable life lessons in teamwork, time management, presentation planning and marketing. Interaction with professionals from a variety of related fields also helps participants to connect school to career and envision a future that employs their unique talents.


Please join our Society of Petroleum Engineers’ Gulf Coast Section in supporting the Ecobot! There are several volunteer positions to use your skills and time to provide a meaningful experience to all of our participants. Anticipate 1100+ students, teachers, parents & volunteers. You may find the list of volunteer positions here.
