  • The Robotics for Good Youth Challenge Kenya is the prestigious Kenyan National Event of the Robotics for Good Youth Challenge. Experience the excitement as Kenyan teams showcase their skills in a UN-based global robotics competition, focusing on the critical area of disaster response. This National Event is a qualifying tournament leading to the Grand Finale in Geneva during the AI for Good Global Summit 2025.  

    This global competition is open to any individual or team willing to design, build, and code a robot to address the proposed challenge of disaster response in the competition game board, contributing to the advancement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. 

    Benefits for the finalist 

    The Winner of the session receives:     

    • Robotics for Good Youth Challenge Grand Finale ticket at the AI for Good Global Summit 2025  
    • Leaders Pass to attend the AI for Good Global Summit 2025  
    • Exhibition booth at the AI for Good Global Summit 2025  
    • Pitching opportunity in the Youth Zone at the AI for Good Global Summit 2025  
    • Exclusive follow-up Mentoring from judges after the session    
    • Networking opportunities with the UN and other potential partners 


    The Robotics for Good Youth Challenge is an UN-based educational robotics championship that every two years is inspired on a global challenge in relation to which robots offer practical solutions to advance the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).    

    Participants design, build and program a robot that completes a mission based on one of these goals. While learning robotics and coding, students gain more than just technical know-how, but also vital working-life and future skills, including but not limited to teamwork, problem-solving, project management, critical thinking, and information retrieval.   

    The competition fosters free-software and hardware robotics, allowing unrestricted assembly and programming of the robots. It aims to promote inclusivity, enabling learning in robotics and coding regardless of gender, socio-economic status, or academic ability. Additionally, it encourages the use of recycled materials and environmentally friendly solutions, emphasizing the development of sustainable robots.
