The Atomic City Invitational consists of two robotics competitions: The Sumo Bot Competition and Animal Allies
Sumo Bot Challenge:
Named after the famous Japanese competition, in the Lego Sumo Bot challenge, robots attempt to force one another out of a 4' diameter circular ring (dohyo) by pushing or disabling one's opponent. Please check the competition rules carefully for details on robot design restrictions, weight limits and allowed moves. May the best robot win.
This is your chance to try or re-try the 2017 Lego FLL Animal Allies. We will run the table competition according to official FLL rules except that teams can be as small as two students. This gives everyone a chance to be hands on with the robot.
Outcomes of Program:
The Atomic City Invitational builds on the mission of First Lego League but students work in smaller teams to promote greater hands-on time. The Atomic City Invitational inspires teams to research, build, and experiment, and by doing so, they live the entire process of creating ideas, solving problems, and overcoming obstacles, while gaining confidence in their abilities to positively use technology. This competition embodies these same principles, by allowing the students to continue to engage in STEM activities after the qualifier tournament is over. Tennessee's standards related to INQUIRY and ENGINEERING DESIGN are the most relevant to this competition.
LEGO EV3 or NXT Robot Kits
Competition lasts one day - January 14th, 2017. Students practice prior to the competition.
The robot kits - $350.00
FIRST LEGO League teams are who can participate, but they can have the opportunity to enter several robots with teams of two instead of one robot for a team of ten. This gives more students hands-on opportunity with the building and programming side of FLL.
Little LEGO trophies or ribbons will be given as prizes.
One per team per year
