  • IEEE NJ Coast Robot Challenge, Brookdale Community College

    The event involves a group of (usually 4 or 5) High School STEM students that organize, create, test, fabricate and race their robot on a track for competition at the First IEEE NJ Coast Robot Competition this April 5th, 2014. The students begin by creating a theme for their team/robot with a carrying case and a flag. Most of the students dress up in costumes in line with their theme. They follow sketches, plan and keep a log for their entire project to aid them with a written report that will detail their experience, including problems encountered and solutions. Now they compete by racing their Robot on a 6-inch track with two 1/2 in hurdles and finish the day with an Oral report in front of the judges. The time it takes to build the robot and complete their project varies, depending on the time the students devote to their project. The students are given their robot in January, so that they can be ready for the annual April Robot Competition. It generally can take 3 hours a week for 3 months to complete. The teams go through three judged events: Fabrication, Oral and Track. The written report is handed in a week before the actual Race Day. The Teams first go to Fabrication table where the construction of their robot is checked to ensure it fits the documented criteria from the manual. A trial run is done at the fabrication table with their robot, where each team member controls one leg of the robot. If the robot is ready to run, they go to track. If not, they are allowed to go to the Pit, where they receive guidance in getting their robot ready to compete. They are allowed to go to the pit even when they are on track if something goes wrong. After the Robot walks the whole track. They do an Oral presentation where they are judged on teamwork, creativity, ingenuity, problem solving and learning lessons. Inspiration for this event is by the Baltimore Chapter of IEEE (http://www.robotchallenge.com/), who has been sponsoring Robot Challenge Events for about 18 years.
