Robotics Expo will hold robot sumo fights!

Is your LEGO robot definitely the strongest? Let's test it: register to participate in the RoboSumo competition and show us whose fighter is the coolest!

On November 25-26, Robotics Expo will host battles in RoboSumo nomination with robots assembled by children aged 7-12 years and 13-18 years.

Main task for your robot is to push the opponent out of the ring, just like in the ancient Japanese martial art. All gadgets must comply with standards described in competition rules, based on the international RobotChallenge rules.

Your sumo wrestler must:

  • correspond to the LEGO mini sumo class;
  • weigh no more than 1kg;
  • be 15cm in length and width, its height doesn’t matter;
  • function autonomously;
  • consist only of LEGO parts (including licensed LEGO parts from third-party manufacturers).

The match takes place between two robots from two participants or teams. During the competition, only one team member can approach the ring. Match begins on judge's command and lasts until one of the robots wins two points.

If your fighter meets all regulation requirements, fill out the RoboSumo participation form!

After the registration, two participant groups will be formed and battles will take place on both days:

  • from 12:00 to 14:00 - participants of 7-12 years old;
  • from 15:00 to 17:00 – participants of 13-18 years old.

Robo sumo in the “Mini 15x15” category will be held together with Polycent – a scientific and technical creativity platform and a development center for children and teenagers (from 4 to 17 years old) with experienced and well-known trainers in IT, robotics, engineering. Teachers help kids to develop the technical competence, creative thinking, and interdisciplinary proficiency to solve tasks working in a team, using emotional intelligence and intercultural communication skills.
