Recently our very
talented Robotics Teams participated the
Maryborough Technology Challenge. Our children were placed 1st and 2nd
in the Midget Sumo Rescue Robot Challenge and 1st in the Monster Sumo
challenge they were presented with was:
CHALLENGE- Someone has sent a distress call
asking for a rescue. There are 4 victims trapped on a sinking water tank in a
chemical spill (sumo ring). Your team’s mission is to design, build and program
a robot to rescue the victims.
chemical spill (sumo ring) can only be found by following the road. The robot
should find the chemical spill, locate and push or drag the victims from the
chemical spill to safety as quickly as possible (push the cans out of the ring)
and dispose of the mad robot (push your opponent out of the ring).
and construct an autonomous robot to “rescue” the victims by travelling along
the black road and rescuing the victim located in the chemical spill area.
There are 2 divisions for your robots:
Midget Division: Robots will
be categorized into the Midget division if the robots weighs less than 750
Monster Division: Monster robots are
categorized as weighing larger than 750 grams but less than 1250 grams.
Have a look at our hardworking and talented students involved in
this great learning opportunity.
We are so very proud of you all.
