Do you hear the heartbeat?
Have you ever been sick or hurt? You may need to go to a doctor's office or the hospital. The future of medicine will involve robotics. The Body Works Challenge will bring you together with your robot. Your robot will mend bones, take blood samples, inject medications and more. Be prepared to program your robot to help you be a better person.

Schools may sponsor multiple teams.

A Student may ONLY be on 1 Team.
A School may send teams to separate RCX Regional Tournaments.
Teams may ONLY compete at 1 RCX Regional Tournament.
Locally, Schools may offer a "District" tournament. It is encouraged for schools to offer additional opportunities for the students to get together to learn and compete. Teams may compete at as many local tournaments as possible. Participation at a local tournament is at the Host School's discretion.
Bringing the students together allows them to learn from each other. Share ideas. Share successes and failures. By networking, the students develop leadership skills and communication skills as we prepare them for their future.
