High School Robotics Challenge
Would you like to be part of a HiTech team that builds a robot for the Regional IEEE Robot Challenge in Baltimore April 5 and 6? High School students who register for this team, will be expected to attend all meetings (no more than 3 absences will be permitted).

The HiTech IEEE Robot Challenge Team is geared to engage High School boys and girls in a 2 to 4 month activity that closely resembles the type of work an engineering graduate would be doing in the "real world." The team will build a two leg robot and compete against others in the region at the two day challenge at the Baltimore Museum of Industry. Teams will race their robots against others. HiTech's Engineering Team will also have to create a written report detailing their project and make an oral presentation to a group of judges from the local engineering community.

For more information, visit robotchallenge.com.
