One New Demonstration Contest
Five Continued Demonstration Contests
In the Graphic Imaging – Sublimation contest, student competitors demonstrate their abilities to perform screen-printing processes. Students are judged on printing graphics on various material and surfaces as well as their overall knowledge of graphic imaging.
Humanoid Robotics is a cutting-edge research field that focuses on a variety of subjects, such as artificial intelligence, mechatronics engineering, and computer science. The competitors are asked to develop and or program a robot to perform certain functions. A fully programmable, humanoid robot can see, hear, speak, move, walk, dance, and even play soccer.
Two-member contestant teams in the Sustainability Solutions contest develop green technology innovation projects. The student team presents the project along with a display and live model.
Urban Search and Rescue contestants construct and adapt the mechanical and electrical systems of an urban search and rescue (USAR) robot capable of delivering and deploying critical medical supplies to trapped victims in a simulated emergency search-and-rescue situation.
