Projects in this category are autonomous machines engineered and programmed by the student from their own concepts and designs, or published drawings/kits.

Devices controlled through direct, real time remote control by the student are not appropriate (ie: remote controlled cars). Once started, the robotics project should operate as a standalone independent machine without human interaction.

Examples of commercially available robotics kits are Lego, K'Nex, Capsella, VEX, and Technics. Student engineered robot designs and concepts are encouraged.

Visit this category at the NEW Georgia Student Technology Competition website.

You may have up to 2 people on a team. Teams and individuals will compete against each other within each grade grouping.

Regardless of the length of the project, the judge time is 15 minutes. Judges may only view a portion of the actual project.

Judges will use a category rubric as a guideline for exemplary characteristics of projects in this category. Students should use the rubric as a guide for what judges are looking for.
