You've Got Mail !

CyberKids Robotics is hosting a National Robotics Competition this summer to give teams the opportunity to compete on a national stage and get some extra practice in for the upcoming FLL Robotics season.

You've Got Mail !
National Robotics Competition

CyberKids Robotics is a non-profit education company dedicated to improving the STEM education of students in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia through our exciting robotics competition program. CyberKids Robotics is hosting a National Robotics Competition called "You've Got Mail!". The theme of this competition will be helping the Postal Service process and deliver the mail using a LEGO Mindstorms NXT robot of your design.

For this competition, your robotics team cannot have more than six team members. All team members must be between the ages of 9 and 14 as of June 1, 2010. All construction, programming and robot execution must be performed by the registered robotics team members.

After registering your team, you will receive a "You've Got Mail !" competition mat, field setup kit and a set of detailed rules and regulations for the competition.

Each team's robot must be built entirely out of LEGO elements, and must be controlled by LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT elements. Only one LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT Intelligent Brick is allowed for each robot. All robots must be programmed with LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT-G.

Each team will have until midnight on August 16, 2010 to complete all building and programming and submit a video of their robot completing as many "You've Got Mail !" missions as possible within two minutes and thirty seconds. The robotics team accumulating the most points in the shortest amount of time....WINS!

Each robotics team must also submit a "no longer than five minute" video explaining the design of their robot, the team's strategy in solving the "You've Got Mail !" missions and each team member must explain their primary role for this competition.
