2017 CSM Robotics Junior Results


This division uses the LEGO Mindstorm/EV3 Robotics Systems as the competition platform. 

Each year we will announce a new challenge for the competition. This year, the challenge is Trash Trek. Teams must build robots to compete in the challenge and complete a research project related to the challenge. During the competition, teams must also appear before panel of judges.

THIS YEAR, ONLY MIDDLE SCHOOL TEAMS WILL BE INTERVIEWED BY JUDGES IN-PERSON ON THE COMPETITION DAY. BOTH ELEMENTARY AND MIDDLE SCHOOL TEAMS WILL PARTICIPATE IN MATCHES AND COMPLETE THE ONLINE RESEARCH PROJECT.

Team members and team coaches should review the Challenge DocumentChallenge UpdatesScoresheet, and Mission Model Building Instructions.

Tournament Structure

Elementary school teams will compete in the morning, and middle school teams will compete in the afternoon.

Teams will play at least three matches to demonstrate their robot on the challenge field and to earn as many points as possible. The highest score of the three matches counts.

In addition, teams will undergo one 10-minute long judging session.
