About the Wisconsin Robotics Competition
Competition will take place throughout Tuesday and Wednesday, October 8-9, and the Awards Ceremony will take place Thursday, October 10th.
Teams of 3 students will be given three hours to complete a set of tasks on a FANUC LR Mate 200iD education robot. The tasks are aligned to foundational knowledge taught in FANUC’s coursework, so students will be familiar with the objectives.
There will be multiple levels with increasing difficulty, allowing beginners to test their knowledge and more advanced students to challenge themselves. It will be the perfect challenge for any school!
The objective will include program planning, end of arm tool selection, robot programming, teamwork, and more.
Teams will be judged by a panel of experts on their ability to complete the objective, efficiency, teamwork, and robotics knowledge.
All Wisconsin high school and college students are encouraged to participate in this competition.
