Arduino Sumo challenge

Still needed of $1,320.18 goal
days to go
  • My Class Needs 16 robot car platforms and a few infer red to explore mechatronics

    Launched October 30th, 2017 Project Deadline January 30th, 2018
    Classroom Size 24 Students School Size 1300 Students

    My Students

    There are two classes this will benefit, a Grade 11/Grade12 combined Computer Engineering Class and a Grade 10 Computer Technology class.

    How will this project impact them?

    My present course is a lab/project based. I would like to create a challenge construct unit based on a sumo robotic. The school has enough Arduinos to be used for the designs.
