The RCX Challenge for 2020-2021 is going Retro
With the complexity of this school year, the RCX Program is going to try to make things easier and more economical for your school and your robotics program.
To help answer these questions, the RCX Program is going Retro, meaning we will use the Mission Horizon Challenge from the 2019-2020 school year for 2020-2021. This will provide your students the ability to continue their robotics skills, while reducing, or eliminating expenses to purchase new RCX Challenge materials. We also plan to offer a "Virtual Tournament" for kids to participate from their school without the need to travel. Ultimately, if in-person tournaments are allowed, we will promote participating at regional tournaments.
Virtual Tournament Options
To challenge your team, the RCX Program plans to offer Virtual Tournaments of RCX Chalenges from years past as well. Each challenge will have a separate Virtual Tournament for your kids to enjoy. Details of how to participate in a Virtual Tournament will be outlined in January.
Here is a list of Virtual Tournaments planned for this school year:
2019-2020 Mission Horizon
2018-2019 Ua Hala Ka Hala Island Adventure
2017-2018 Body Works
2016-2017 Fun at the Fair
2015-2016 Avalanch Rescue Challenge
2014-2015 Mars Adventure Challenge
Use the challenge supplies you have received in the past. If you need to purchase replacement LEGOs &/or mats limited supplies are available. The nice thing with the LEGOs is that you can use different color LEGOs to create the Mission Objects for these challenges.
Additional details will be coming.
Use the Mission Horizon Challenge materials, videos and documents from last year.
If you would like a different theme, chose from the Past Challenges page and participate in a challenge of the year you like. Use the challenge materials (mat and LEGOs) you purchased in the past. If you would like new materials, they can be purchased at Supplies for more RCX Challenge Themes, quantities are limited.
