The Mark Twain House & Museum’s Robotic Frog Jumping Contest. 

June 8, 2019, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

The Jumping Frog Contest was an important and lively annual event at the Mark Twain House in Hartford, Connecticut for many years, but was discontinued in 1979.  Now, forty years later, The Mark Twain House & Museum is proud to bring the Frog Jumping Contest back, this time with a very modern twist: robotics.  The updated tourney will take place on Saturday, June 8, 2019, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. as part of the yearly Tom Sawyer Day celebration. We are inviting robotics teams, clubs and individual makers to participate.

"If Mark Twain were alive, he'd be happy about this contest, because he'd win it." - Andy Borowitz
