The WSU Shocker MINDSTORMS Fall Challenge is an informal competition open to all comers. Previous Fall Challenges have included two events: the IR2L Robot Race, and the Sumo Competition. This year we have added two NEW events: the Tug O' War Competition, and the Wu Toss! 

The times listed for each event are subject to change depending on the number of participants; however we will try to maintain the schedule posted above. You may compete in one event, or all four; you may compete by yourself, or with your mom or brother or friends. This is meant to be a competition where everyone can participate and have fun!!
