April 4, 2019 NEW UPDATES:
Individual Competition Areas Clarifications:
People Powered Car: Please remind your students and parents that no pre-made vehicles (like shopping carts, go carts, lawn mowers, strollers) should be entered. Please also remind them of the measurement requirements.
Marble Run: This is an onsite build. One tube of insulation will be cut in half to make two pieces NOT two tubes. There is no limit to the number of teams registered for this event per school. Teams are 3-4.
Robot Programming/Robot SUMO: If your district owns more than one LEGO Mindstorm EV3 robot, you may register more than one team if you bring your own Ipad and robot. In the past, we limited number of teams because we loaned out devices and there wasn't enough to go around. Bring robots pre-assembled to the competition.
STEM Challenge: We are still writing up this area. We will send out a concentration descsription as soon as it is ready.
Sphero Chariot: The coop only has a limited number of spheros. If your district owns it's own sphero, you may register as many teams as you have spheros and ipads. If you bring your own sphero, you must also bring an ipad. Teams of 2-4, but I think 4 might be too many for this area.
Ozobot Experience: Last year we did Ozobots, our presenter has suggested that instead of presenting on Ozobots we mix it up and do Code and Go this year. It is a great introduction to coding and alogrithms. Here is a link with more information. I need your input. If you for sure want the Ozobots, let me know asap. We will move forward using the Code and Go if few or no "nays" are given. Your district will receive one free device for each group of 3 you bring (I think a group of 4 might be too large?). You may register more than one group, but you will be charged an additional $50. We can open this up to any group in grades 4-6. Please know if they register for this, they may not register for a competition area.
REGISTRATION (Due May 2, 2019)
