Come watch the races!
Youths will have the chance to explore some of the coolest laboratories in UBC Applied Science. In this lab tour, we will walk you through three different laboratories: Aerodynamic Lab and Industrial Automation Lab and the CARIS Lab! This event will take place in the morning right before the exciting robotic races described above. Click Here for more information about the tour.
In this section of the competition, teams will be submitting a report and will also be giving a 10 minute presentation on the design of the robot, essentially explaining their solution to the problem.
Two teams will be racing against each other on a 30m straightaway. This race will be in the style of a ladder elimination. So there’ll be a quarter final, semi final, and then finals heat against the two fastest robots. Teams will be awarded points in relation to their standing.
This will be the ultimate race, the problem the participants have to solve with their robots. It will be a large circuit race with obstacles; natural obstacles, such as trees and flower pots and man-made obstacles such as cone obstruction and stop signs. We will also be having drones on the race track serving as moving obstacles.
