List of 12 Contests That Will Take Place During The April 15th-17th, 2010 Event

Links displayed are just a few of the previous suppliers and kits used to compete in the listed events.

  • In the Manufacturing Model contest, the participants design, construct, and operate a system that performs more than one manufacturing processes using lego or fischertechnik systems.
  • The AgBot Challenge contest challenges the student teams to design, construct, program

and operate a battery powered lego robot for use in an agricultural simulation

  • SUMO Robot: in which two robots (RC or autonomous) try to push each other out of the playing circle.
  • Mini-SUMO Robot: the same as SUMO Robot, but with a smaller mini sumo robots and playing circle.
  • Manufacturing Robotic Work Cell: in which contestants design, create and operate a system that can perform at least one manufacturing process.
  • Pick and Place Programming: in which contestants write programs that will allow an Intelitek robot to pick up and drop certain items.
  • Robot Construction - Open: in which contestants choose a task, then design, make and operate a robot that will do that task.
  • Robot Maze Contest: in which contestants navigate a maze using a tactile or non-tactile 'mouse'.
  • Top of the Hill: in which robots navigate a Moonscape with obstacles and try and retrieve ping pong balls.
  • Robotic Problem Solving: in which contestants use the materials and software provided to create a Robix robot that will solve a common problem which occurs in manufacturing plants.
  • Hockey Robot: in which two teams, each with two robots, go head to head in a hockey-like competition.
  • Math Machine Challenge - Students use Math Machine robots with Texas Instruments programmable Ti-83/84 graphing calculators to solve mathematics problems using geometry and Algebraic expressions.

Famous quotes containing the words list of, april, event, place, list and/or contests:

    My list of things I never pictured myself saying when I pictured myself as a parent has grown over the years.
    Polly Berrien Berends (20th century)

    In April 1917 the illusion of isolation was destroyed, America came to the end of innocence, and of the exuberant freedom of bachelor independence. That the responsibilities of world power have not made us happier is no surprise. To help ourselves manage them, we have replaced the illusion of isolation with a new illusion of omnipotence.
    Barbara Tuchman (1912–1989)

    Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child’s world and thus a world event.
    Gaston Bachelard (1884–1962)

    Always keep a place to which you can retreat.
    Chinese proverb.

    We saw the machinery where murderers are now executed. Seven have been executed. The plan is better than the old one. It is quietly done. Only a few, at the most about thirty or forty, can witness [an execution]. It excites nobody outside of the list permitted to attend. I think the time for capital punishment has passed. I would abolish it. But while it lasts this is the best mode.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    In great contests each party claims to act in accordance with the will of God. Both may be, and one must be wrong.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)
