PVEF is launching a special robot event to be held at the FLL Jr. Expo on May 4th but open to robot enthusiasts of all ages: the LEGO Sumo Bot Competition!
Lego Sumo Bot is a sport where two robots compete in a head-to-head match following the basic system of traditional human sumo matches. Robots are allowed no weapons. The sole purpose is a pushing match between the two robots to force the other from the Sumo Ring.
•No age brackets – everyone invited
•Parent/child teams are great
•Lego Mindstorm robots only
We're even offering a Workshop on April 6 so we can help you review the rules, program your robot, and practice your moves. You can even check out a Mindstorms Robot to use at the competition if you don't already have one (must already be registered for the competition.)
You can download the info flyer here.
