Each team will have five hours to build and program a robot using a LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 (31313) robot kit provided by Avnet. The robot is built to complete two different table challenges.
First table: A line following course will award points based on the total distance and time achieved by the robot.
Second table: A maze course that provides points when the robot performs up to three tasks and/or navigates sections of the course.
The robot that completes the two tables with the most points wins.
