Come build a SumoBot robot with Lord of the Bricks!

A SumBot competition will involve two robots in a circular ring, with the goal 
being to push your opponent out of the ring or otherwise disabling them within 
the time limit, while not falling off the ring, yourself. While pushing your 
opponent out of the ring is the most common way to win a round, disabling 
your opponent (flipping, lifting, etc.) is strongly encouraged.

We will design, build, program, and test a pair of Lego-Class robots that will 
compete autonomously in a face-off against each other in a SumoBot-style 
competition.  Learn design and programming principles using Lego Mindstorms & 
NXT-G software.

Class size is limited to 10 participants.  Ideal for ages 8+
Cost: $150

June 23-27 1-4pm
Tech Em Studios, 11551 Nuckols Rd, Glen Allen, VA 23059
