Teams of 7th through 12th graders design, build, program, and operate their own robots in a head-to-head alliance format
The teams can range from around four people to ten or more. They are guided by adult coaches and mentors who help them learn and apply engineering principles to their work. Teams use a standard kit of parts as well as parts that they purchase from online sources or even their own 3D printed parts. The set of challenges the teams' robots must do changes every year, so every season is never exactly the same.
