Build a robot, draw a robot, code a robot with your friends. There are no rules other then to share the excitement of robotics with your friends, family, or community. Share with us how you will be celebrating!
It is an inexpensive team project designed to engage High School boys and girls in a 2 to 4 month activity that closely resembles the work a graduate engineer would be doing in the “real world”. They build a two or four leg robot during the months before the Challenge. On the day of the Challenge they will run their robot down a track for time. They also have to create a written report detailing their project and make an oral presentation to a group of judges from the local engineering community.

SuGO Sunday is a free-build Sumo LEGO Robot competition.
Teams of 2-4 are formed from friends and families. Construction starts at 1:00pm. Tournament begins at 3:00. All materials supplied (LEGOs, LEGOs and more LEGOs), light snacks are available for purchase.
NXT bricks are pre-programmed, so it's all about building a robust, agile SuGObot that fits in the sizing box and weighs in under 26 Oz.

The FIRST® Robotics Competition (FRC®) stages
short games played by robots. The robots are designed and built in six weeks (from a common set of parts) by a team of high-school-aged young people and a handful of engineers-Mentors. The students program and remotely control the robots in competition rounds on the field. The FIRST
Robotics Competition Regional events are typically held in university arenas. They involve 40 to 70 teams cheered by thousands of fans over three days (two days for District events).

The CSM Robotics Challenge was started in 2007. Each year we will announce a new challenge for the competition. This year, the challenge is "Lego Green City". Teams must build robots to compete in the challenge and complete a research project related to the challenge.

SeaPerch is an innovative underwater robotics program that equips teachers and students with the resources they need to build an underwater Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) in an in-school or out-of-school setting. Students build the ROV from a kit comprised of low-cost, easily accessible parts, following a curriculum that teaches basic engineering and science concepts with a marine engineering theme. The SeaPerch Program provides students with the opportunity to learn about robotics, engineering, science, and mathematics (STEM) while building an underwater ROV as part of a science and engineering technology curriculum. Throughout the project, students will learn engineering concepts, problem solving, teamwork, and technical applications.After building the robot during class time, some students will work after school to prepare their robots for the competition at the Naval Academy. We have engineers from the Naval Surface Warfare Center coming to work with the students after school to help them modify the existing robot and prepare for the competition.
