Robot Elimination Ladder – NEW Activity for the 2017 Championship
This year the teams with the top 8 robot performance scores will be invited to participate in the Robot Elimination Ladder. This is just for fun and gives all of the teams a chance to see how the top performing robots accomplish their high scores. Teams invited to participate will receive buttons to allow them access to the floor during this event. Starting at 3:15 (please make sure your pit is empty!) teams will draw a LEGO brick to determine the starting line-up. Two robots will face-off on a HYDRO DYNAMICS competition table. The team that gets the higher score in 2.5 minutes will go on to the next round of the ladder competition. In the case of a tie, the robot that had the higher score during the days competitions will continue. All competitions will be on the video screen! The matches will continue until only one robot remains. No robots should be damaged in this fun activity.
