Challenge: Wall Climber

Printer-friendly version

Build a robot that can climb over a brick wall.

Rules and Procedures: 
  • The robot may not be any more than 5” high when the run button is pressed.
  • You can’t touch the robot again until after it is over the wall.
  • It may not leave any parts or ramps behind and must start out flat on the ground (it can’t be on a platform)./li>
Grading Guide: 
  • 1 brick – 100 RoboBucks (no bonuses)
  • 2 bricks – 500 RoboBucks
  • 3 bricks – 750 RoboBucks
  • 4 bricks – 1000 RoboBucks

These are not independent payments. If your robot just made it over two bricks, you’ll only get 250 additional RoboBucks if it makes it over three.

A bonus of 200 RoboBucks will be paid if the robot is still in one piece and operational once it gets over the highest wall it is intended to climb.
