The 2018 NEOREP High School competition was titled Mission to Mars. Teams had to design a robot that would navigate through a maze built on a 4'x8' sheet of plywood and complete Games 2 (Stake Your Claim) & 3 (Defend Your Post). In Game 2, robots would start in the Start Zone pre-loaded with their flag. The teams would have to autonomously navigate to the other side of the table and deposit the flag completely within the white space of the Mars Landing Zone. The robots have to then pick up a "rock" from the MLZ and transport it to the Mars Lab Zone. In Game 3, robots would start in the Start Zone pre-loaded with their flag as well as six ping pong balls. The teams would have to autonomously navigate to the other side of the table and deposit the flag completely within the white space of the Mars Landing Zone. The robot then has to travel back to the target zone and launch the ping pong balls through the 12" hoop on the opposite side of the table. Both games require the robots to display total time taken and distance traveled upon completion. This year's competition was unique in the sense that we had two HS teams competing at the competition!
