Classroom Resource: STEM Robotics 101 Invitational Competition Specifications

Printer-friendly version

The first attached word file is the specification from the 5th annual South Sound STEM Robotics 101 Invitational held in Olympia, WA in June 2014.  This competition started 4 years earlier as chance for the 4 pilot schools within the Olympia School District to demonstrate the skills they had acquired through STEM Robotics 101.  The event has grown over 50% a year, and in 2014, 25 schools from 11 school districts competed in the three events with over 100 robots.  The second attached word file is a logistics document that describes how the event was run, including the use of the Challonge.com site to track the 12 different double elimination brackets. The link below is a STEM Pals (OSD STEM Booster Club) newspage about the results of the competition.
