Come join FIRST Tech Challenge team Green Machine Reloaded 4318 for a fun day building and competing with sumo wrestling robots. Will your bot rule the ring?
Where: Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory, 11100 Johns Hopkins Road, Laurel, Maryland 20723
What is SuGO? It combines the fun of LEGO Mindstorm NXT robots with Sumo wrestling. In this workshop youth work in teams to build SuGO Battle Bots using supplied LEGO Mindstorms NXT kits with special SuGO add-ons. After the bots are built it will be time to hit the competition ring for a thrilling and fun tournament. For more details on these battle bots see SuGO
No programming is necessary but LEGO Mindstorms NXT building experience is a plus. For those new to Mindstorms we can provide step by step building instructions.
