Tuesday, March 30th, 5 pm to 8 pm

Almonte Branch library

Try your hand at building a sumobot with Lego EV3 Mindstorms and have some fun competing against other teams. Robot-sumo is a sport in which two robots attempt to push each other out of a circle (in a similar fashion to the sport of sumo). Register here https://form.jotform.com/210494880927263

Participants will gather in the main room of the library after closing hours so each team will have plenty of space around them. The competition will consist of 8 teams, each team composed of 1 or 2 people from the same household.

Each team will have their own table with a Lego EV3 Mindstorms kit, a Chomebook and instructions to build and code a sumobot. Our awesome STEM programmer will be at hand to help you with the building and the coding. Afterwards, we will pit the sumobots against each other and we will declare a winner!

In order to keep everyone safe, the following Covid-19 protocols will be applied.
