Look for a number of interesting robot events this month. The November ChiBots contest will be held in a new venue and includes a new maze-solving event. The finals for both the Texas BEST and South's BEST will also be held in November. The Texas BEST final is a worth seeing for its sheer size alone. There are sometimes teams from as many as 60 schools competing. November also includes events in Spain, Japan, and Canada. So, no matter where you live, there's probably a robot competition worth seeing (o participating in).
