At the National Robotics Challenge we believe that engineering is not just about taking the same parts as someone else and changing how they are put together. Engineering is about finding the materials and equipment that is best for the problem you are given.

The National Robotics Challenge contests are open to students in 6th grade through graduate school. This not only allows your students to continue with robotics as they move on, but it also let’s them meet students at the next level that will inspire and encourage them.

The mission of the National Robotics Challenge is to provide educational robotics competitions where students can develop the creativity, engineering, problem solving, and leadership skills they will need in the world of tomorrow.

The National Robotics Challenge is composed of twelve exciting contest categories. These educational activities are designed to provide students with an opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of technology through a variety of contests. Each contest challenges student knowledge in a particular area of manufacturing, technology, robotics, and automation. A robot may only be entered in one contest category per year, unless otherwise noted in a contest category section of the manual.

Students are judged on their application of technological principles and concepts, and their ability to solve difficult problems through a team approach. During the judging for each contest, only the contest facilitator and judges/officials are permitted in the designated contest area. Instructors, team advisors, parents, and additional competition attendees are prohibited from entering into the designated contest area while judging is occurring. Concerns regarding, or objections to a judge’s ruling must be brought to the attention of the Director of Contest Judging or Director of Events at the time of the contest judging. For all contests and special awards, the decisions of the judge(s) are final and binding. For complete criteria descriptions see the contest manual.

Criteria

Students are judged on their application of technological principles and concepts, and their ability to solve difficult problems through a team approach. During the judging for each contest, only the contest facilitator and judges/officials are permitted in the designated contest area.
