This is very exciting new product developed in collaboration with the PEEL school district in Ontario, Canada (http://www.peelschools.org
). This mat is designed to be used for many years in the Peel Skills challenge they do throughout the district (http://www.peelskills.com
). The challenge is a 'day of' competition in which students do not see the robot tasks until the morning of the event. The purpose of the challenge is "to provide students an opportunity to compete in a friendly environment that fosters creativity, collaboration, and problem solving in an open-ended challenge. The theme for this year’s Robotics Challenge is “Water”. Together with their teammates, students will design, construct, and program an autonomous Lego robot to accomplish specific tasks on a competition table, as well as during a collaborative Robot Dance challenge." You can read about the scope of the challenge in this document: PEEL-7-8_Robotics-Scope.pdf
This year's challenge documents are now available and include the
full challenge instructions, descriptive PPTs, sample images, graphics
for your own use, and templates for you to create your own challenges.
