Following on from last year’s success, the KAUST RISC Lab is back with a brand new story contest, the RobotoKAUST: Short Robotics Story and Video Contest 2022. The contest is open to children, teenagers (TKS G1- G12 level) and adults.

This year, the RobotoKAUST 2022: Short Robotics Story Contest welcomes entries in two different formats:

  • Stories up to 200 words. 
  • Videos and video animations (up to 60 seconds).

The guiding thread will be the robots in marine and coastal environments. So, unleash your creativity, take a dive into the “Fantasy Ocean,” and tell us what you can see in words, images, or animations.
To apply, visit the conference website.


Winners will be notified by email and publicly announced and displayed during the RobotoKAUST Gala Event at the KAUST University Library on March 1, 2022, during the KAUST Research Conference on Robotics and Autonomy 2022.


Short Story: The first prize will be a Go Pro 10. A number of selected stories will be turned into video animations.
