The Best Robotics Competition challenges students to design robots that perform on a specially designed field with obstacles and tasks in a tournament style setting.

• New educational theme/challenge and field each year
• Challenge and field kept secret until Kick Off Day
• Playing field is usually usually a 24’ x 24’ configuration configuration
• 4 teams compete per 3‐minute match
• Points awarded for successful completion of tasks
• Each team competes in 5‐8 matches in a preliminary “seeding” round

Students build robots and compete against other teams in a playing field to see who can score the most points by performing tasks in a unique playing field updated each year. Robots must perform live in a tournament style setting.
