Contest Details

TEAM FORMAT

Students may enter in the Junior Division (for 3rd-8th grade) or Senior Division (for 9th-12th grade). Teams of up to # students will bring a fully assembled and programmed robot to compete against others.

TOURNAMENT STYLE

Robot will have to complete “known challenges” along with “unknown challenges” that are released the day of the contest. There will be preliminary matches in which teams earn points. The sum of those two matches plus the teamwork score will determine the team’s total score. The top 5 teams in each age division will advance to the final match. For known challenges and further contest information visit the Texas 4-H website.
