MESSAGE FROM BOTSIQ EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Dear BotsIQ Community,

It is with disappointment that I share an update on the status of the BotsIQ program for the 2020 Competition Season.

After careful consideration, BotsIQ has decided to cancel all competitions for the remainder of this season. This decision was made following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control, state and local health and government officials, BotsIQ partners, and the BotsIQ Executive Committee.

BotsIQ recognizes every student, teacher, school, industry advisor, and volunteer for their dedication to preparing for this year’s competition. We are also working to recognize our 2020 BotsIQ seniors, competition sponsors and supporters on our social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn).

BotsIQ remains focused on developing manufacturing’s future workforce by connecting students to industry partners and providing opportunities for them to gain in-demand skills through exciting, hands-on STEM learning experiences. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 outbreak and work closely with our schools and manufacturing companies to provide opportunities for students in the coming days and weeks as we navigate this unprecedented time.

Sincerely,
Michel Conklin
Executive Director, BotsIQ
