Regular Category

The Regular Category is a challenge based competition. Students must design, construct and program their robots to solve specific challenges on a field. Points are scored for completed tasks.
 

Regular Category characteristics:

  • Three age groups:
    • Elementary (8-12y)
    • Junior (12-15y)
    • Senior (15-19y) (20y in 2021)
  • Hardware: The controller, motors and sensors used to assemble robots must be from LEGO® (MINDSTORMS® NXT or EV3, SPIKE PRIME or Robot Inventor). The HiTechnic Color Sensor is the only third-party element that can be added to this configuration. Only LEGO branded elements may be used to construct the remaining parts of the robot.
  • Software: Control software for all age groups (Elementary, Junior, Senior) is open to any software and any firmware.
  • Maximum robot size: 25cm x 25cm x 25cm.
  • Surprise Rule: A surprise rule will be announced when the competition starts, to test the team’s ability to adapt their hardware or programming.
    (Note: some member countries have a slightly different approach to the surprise rule.)
  • Assembly: The teams bring their robot completely disassembled. In the first part of the competition they will have 150 minutes to assemble their robots from loose parts without instructions.
    (Note: some member countries have a slightly different approach to the surprise rule.)
  • Team: A team consists of 2 or 3 team members and is guided by a coach.

WeDo Regular

The WeDo Regular Challenge is designed for younger children (6-10y). The goal is for each team to build and program a WeDo robot that can complete a series of tasks on a Game Table. WeDo is only offered at a national level, and our National Organizers are free to adapt rules and regulations for their competition.
