Overview

Guided by adult Coaches, and Core Values, students use LEGO® elements and motorized parts to build a model that moves. They also develop a Show me Poster to illustrate thair journey.

Teams design their own solution to a real-world problem and build autonomous LEGO MINDSTORMS® robots that perform a series of missions based on an annual theme.

Teams design, build, and program their robots to compete in an Alliance format againts other teams.
Robots are built from a reusable platform, powered by Android technology, and programmed using Java.
