Robot Storytelling Competition
The Digital Tales competition is closed now. See the 2018 winning entries.
Can you write a one hundred word story and program an Ohbot robot like this one to tell it?
Yes, you can! Your story can be set anywhere, anytime and feature any characters you like.
I need a robot to enter right?
Wrong! No need to spend any of your pennies on a robot! You will need a computer that runs Windows 7, 8 or 10 and our free easy-to-use programming app. The app has a simulation of Ohbot so you can create and debug your story program without needing a physical robot.
Are there prizes?
Yes, there are! The winner will get an Ohbot robot to keep and one for their school. They will also have their story performed at Cheltenham Science Festival 5-10th June 2018.
Who can enter?
Humans 7 to 15 years old at the closing date
When is it?
Closing date for story entries is May 29th 2018
