All on the Wichita State University Campus

On February 16, 2008, the Colleges of Engineering and Education at Wichita State University will host the Seventh Annual WSU LEGO MINDSTORMS Robotics Challenge. This event provides young students with the opportunity for practical application and exhibition of math, science, programming, and engineering skills, as well as promoting teamwork, dedication, and sportsmanship. Teams of fourth through eighth grade students from across the state of Kansas experience the opportunity to complete Mission Challenges designed by Shocker Engineers, and demonstrate what they have learned to professional engineers and educators in oral presentations, table displays, and notebooks. Sportsmanship and spirit will be judged throughout the day to promote collaboration and teamwork.

NXT and RCX compete together! At the 2008 Challenge, NXT teams and RCX teams will compete against each other! There will be no separate divisions or trophies.
