The 2019 Global Conference on Educational Robotics (GCER) will be held July 7, 2019 - July 11, 2019 (pre-conference on July 6) at the Embassy Suites located in Norman, Oklahoma. The Global Conference on Educational Robotics (GCER), produced by KISS Institute for Practical Robotics, is a professional conference designed for elementary, middle and high school students, their teachers and mentors, technology education professionals, robot enthusiasts, and invited professional guests. GCER gives attendees the inspiration and experience of a professional conference, encouraging students to further their knowledge, network with other students from around the world and pursue related careers. Teachers and mentors have many opportunities to network, exchange best practices and develop new approaches to STEM education. In addition to guest speaker sessions, breakout sessions and an autonomous robotics showcase, GCER also features several autonomous robotics competitions and events. The International Botball Tournament is always a highlight when teams from around the world gather to try their skills at the current year’s Botball game. The conference also features the KIPR Autonomous Aerial Robot Tournament, the KIPR Autonomous Aerial Robot Challenge, and the Junior Botball Challenge. You are invited to attend the GCER and connect with peers, discuss technology-related ideas, attend educational and thought-provoking sessions, and cheer on your favorite teams at one of the many tournament events.
