Student Programs


The RoboRace competition aims to promote robotics among secondary schools in the Czech Republic. Teams of 3 members spend several months building LEGO® MINDSTORMS® based robots designed to fulfil certain tasks. Teams then compete head to head in tournaments. The best teams from 4 qualification tournaments advance to the final tournament. Typical tasks include Pathfinder, Firefighting, Pac-Man, Ball Hunting, Sumo, Ball Balancing and Maze Challenge.
