The KIPR Open Game rules may be used free of charge for educational purposes. They are regularly used in conjunction with collegiate coursework and in educational robotics events around the world.

College students, professional engineers, hobbyists, poets, and anyone else are encouraged to participate so long as at least one member of their team is beyond High School in their educational careers. Team members should not be subject to being tied up with a Botball team or other potentially conflicting GCER activities unless team size is sufficient for remaining team members to handle team logistics.
