Machines Robotics Challenge
The 2003 Spring Simple Machines Robotics Competition for elementary
students is here! The LEGOnauts have explored LEGO Centauri and
it's time for them to return to Earth.
Will your team accept the mission to return the exploration team
to the landing zone?
Since the transporters were damaged during the landing, we need
you to develop a robot that will help transport 30 LEGOnauts from
the exploration and habitation zones to the landing zone!
Below are several PDF files that are step-by-step instructions on
how to build the game pieces. The complete set of game pieces can
be constructed from one LEGO Simple Machines Set.
How to Participate:
If your school is interested in
participating, please contact Lucien
Junkin at Lucien.Junkin@jsc.nasa.gov.
The tournament will be on Saturday, March 8th, 2003 at Hogg
We would also like for the students to get the opportunity to name
the challenge so as of now, this challenge is nameless. An award
will be given to the team that submits the selected name. Please
submit all names to Lucien
before March 1st, 2003.
Please feel free to contact Lucien
with any questions or comments at
Lucien.Junkin@jsc.nasa.gov. Remember, it's all about the students!
Thank you for participating in the 2003 Spring Simple Machines Competition.
