Are in you grades 9 – 12 and have some deep thoughts to share about the future of robotics and its societal implications? Create a two- to three-minute video with your thoughts, and you could win a chance to see the DARPA Robotics Challenge in Pomona, CA this June.

“Videos should consider how both current and anticipated advances in robotics technology may impact one or many areas of society,” reads the Robots4Us Website. “In particular they should address the choices we will face as the nation and the world strive to reap the benefits of the robotics revolution while minimizing the potential for harm.”

Five thoughtful high school students will be sent to the DARPA Robotics Challenge, each with a parent of guardian. Up to three kids can team up to create a single video, but only one teen from each team will be able to go to the Challenge.

Enter online at Robots4Us before 11:59 PM (EST) on April 1, 2015.
