Wichita State University's 2009 Mindstorms Challenge


Students from the Wichita, Kansas area converged on WSU for the 2009 Mindstorms Challenge which took place today, February 21st. The event is sponsored by WSU's Colleges of Engineering and Education. Students from three levels (beginner, intermediate, advanced) competed for trophies in their respective divisions.

In addition to the formal competition, there was a large "NXT Zoo" display from students in the area. Several of the animals were directly or indirectly based on animals from the NXT Zoo Book.

What follows are pictures from today's event:

Congratulations to WSU on a varied and well-run event.

Fay,

That's so cool that they did the Zoo theme - I hope you had fun visiting with the kids. This looks like a very fun event.

Maine Robotics has a track meet every year. They have a list of challenges you can do with the NXT or RCX kits.
