IEEE Robotics Competition (March 2017)

The IEEE Student Branch would like to invite you to participate in the Annual Sumo Robotics Competition. Interested students will work in teams of 2 to 4 to design and build a robot over 2-3 weeks to participate in a sumo wrestling tournament. In essence, build a robot to shove the opponent out of the ring or disable the opponent!! No prior experience is needed and a Lego Mindstorms kit will be lent to each team.

The prizes for winning teams will be:
1st place: $200
2nd place: $150
3rd place: $100

Each team will be required to pay a registration fee of $20 and a refundable security deposit of $20. A $5 discount will be given for each IEEE member on the team (i.e. if all 4 members are IEEE members, you get to compete for free!).

If you are interested, please attend the information session this Wednesday to find out more:
