EXPO (Janitell): Students will showcase their robots to reviewers who will give teams feedback on moving forward. Teams will also demonstrate teamwork and collaboration skills in a 30 minute game. The morning will end with awards in the large gym at Janitell Junior High.
CHALLENGE (WHS): Students will go through multiple practice rounds in the morning. Teams will have to justify the design and engineering of their robots in front of judges. Teams will then complete against other schools to acquire points. Scoring comes from either controlling the robot remotely or having the robot programmed autonomously to complete tasks. Teams will then have the opportunity to compete in an alliance challenge where teams from opposing schools can develop an alliance based on different skills and gain points collaboratively. Overall team points will be awarded and teams reaching certain point criteria will qualify for state competition rounds.
