It was a pleasure to see 94 MS Students working feverishly on fine-tuning the mechanics and testing the programing on their robot. In the two day competition held at the American School of Warsaw each team had only 6-12 minutes of actual competition time yet they worked tirelessly to perfect their robots to achieve certain missions, shoot a ball into a goal, extract the correct colored marker, lift a loop up and away from robotic jaws and reverse engineer a model created by the opposition.
Six trophies were awarded for the following areas:
- CHAMPION’S AWARD -robot performance, mechanical design, programming and teamwork
- JUDGE’S AWARD –effort, sportsmanship, inspiration, graciousness, and stamina
- ROBOT PERFORMANCE AWARD – Winner of the elimination tournament
- MECHANICAL DESIGN AWARD -Evaluation will occur through interviews with teams, inspection of robot and observation of performance.
- PROGRAMMING AWARD – Evaluation will occur through interviews with teams, inspection of programs and observation of performance.
- TEAMWORK AWARD – Evaluation will occur through observation of teams in all aspects of the competition, especially the practice sessions.
