SAN DIEGO: Sony Electronics Inc. announced the first annual KOOV Challenge USA. Students and KOOV users all over the contiguous United States will have the opportunity to have fun, think critically, express their creativity using their coding, robotics and design skills, and collaborate with their peers in this contest to win prizes and further their knowledge in STEAM.


The Sony KOOV Challenge USA Contest is a fun way for Sony to engage and inspire the next generation of young innovators and include future technology design themes that are increasingly important to both Sony and the industry at large, said Michiko Araki Kelley, vice president, New Business and Corporate Marketing group, Sony Electronics. At CES 2020, Sony unveiled the Vision-S Prototype Vehicle, so this year's KOOV Challenge USA continues with the autonomous vehicle transportation theme as part of the competition.

The challenge will be offered to students within the contiguous United States in Grades 3-8 at both public and private schools with teacher or faculty sponsorship and parent/legal guardian consent. There is no fee to participate and students may participate online in the KOOV App and/or in person at Sony's San Diego headquarters.
