Mechanical Eng. Atrium


Competition Director: Eric Choi (Senior Business Development Manager, Magellan Aerospace)

The task is simple: build and program a prototype robot that can explore on its own, differentiate surfaces, avoid obstacles, and collect valuable samples.  And do it all in 2 days.  In a competition with other robots. 

Thanks to LEGO Mindstorms, talent, and a lot of imagination, ISU participants, assisted by robotics experts, will design and build autonomous robots following precise specifications to simulate planetary exploration.

Their performance will be evaluated by a group of international experts, and awards given to the winning team of roboticists. Visitors of all ages are welcome to share an educational and fun experience.
