Projects in this category are autonomous machines engineered and programmed by the student from their own concepts and designs, or published drawings/kits.

Devices controlled through direct, real time remote control by the student are not appropriate (ie: remote controlled cars). Once started, the robotics project should operate as a standalone independent machine without human interaction.

Examples of commercially available robotics kits (but not limited to):

  • Lego

  • K'Nex

  • Capsella

  • VEX

  • Technics

  • Student engineered robot designs and concepts are encouraged.
