Washington TSA is proud to offer three unique competitive events at the WTSA State Conference. While these events are not yet available for national level competition, each competitive event will develop students’ skills in areas that are key to many industries in Washington State.
Students will design, build and test a remote controlled robot to carry out a specific challenge. Teams must be a minimum of two (2) and maximum of four (4) students. High School and Middle school will compete on different challenges. Robots may be constructed using recycled, salvaged and commercial parts. There is no specific platform or vendor required. Commercial kits can be used, combined, adapted, and re-engineered for the Design Challenge. Examples include, but are not limited to: VEX, LEGO, TETRIX, Fisher/Technic, Lynxmotion, HiTech and/or Arduino.
Students will design, build and test a remote controlled drone to carry out a specific challenge. Teams must be a minimum of two (2) and maximum of four (4) students. Finalists will compete in a head-to-head competition.
