The beginning competition involved completing a line course in the quickest time possible.

The returning competitors competed in the advanced bracket. The challenge was to program the robot to navigate a grid and pass over way points for points.  Then stop at the final location.

 

As the competition progressed, segments of the grid would be removed to make it more challenging.
