2009 is the start of a new and exciting event for Challenge Day -- the Robotics Zoo!
In Spring 2008, teachers participated in a Robotics Zoo as part of a workshop in WSU's College of Education. Teachers designed habitats (real or imaginary) for robotic animals, and then built and programmed their robots to respond to their environment. You can see their zoo animals on the WSU Robot Zoo wiki.
Following the workshop, teachers worked with their students to build more zoo animals. Those animals will be on exhibit at this year's Mindstorms Challenge. No additional entries will be accepted for this year, however, look forward to the opportunity to participate in this event next year!
Students or adults who want to participate in a design challenge this year, can still enter the MOC Competition!
