Welcome robot fans!
Sumo Robotics is a fun game played between two opposing autonomous robots. Just like in the real Sumo matches in Japan, the goal is simple—push the other robot out of the ring before they do the same to you. If this sounds interesting, and you are a NoVa resident between 8 and 17 years old, you can participate.
Ashburn Robotics is sponsoring this SumoBot League for people new to Mindstorms robotics, as well as veteran FLL teams. Tournaments have been scheduled for Feb, Mar, Apr & May. See the event registration page for more details. These events will be limited to 16 children. At this time there will be no registration fee for teams to participate. Make sure to read the rules and come with a completed consent form. These can both be found under the download section of the website.
