The theme of the 2017 NEOREP Middle School Competition was "Penguin Bot Race". Teams had to design a robot that would travel two laps around a NASCAR-style oval track as well as navigate a Le Mans-style course, following a line through some hairpin turns. Both games were scored by traveling through as quickly as possible. Additionally, teams had to create a technical journal, documenting the process of creating the robot solution, write a research section on the science and math involved in car races, and make a five-minute presentation to a panel of judges.
