The students had to stay at the start zone and guide their robot to the 'shack' to open the door, retrieve the dangerous biohazard objects, return them to the drop zone, and then go rescue the soldier hostage. Different strategies were used, and different successes were met with just as many faults, to be modified and fixed by the next round of course!
At the end of the day, our students earned 1st, 2nd ,3rd, 4th and 5th in the Level 2 VBRC 2011 Competition! We also had an electronics student team get 1st in the Level 1 VBRC 2011 Competition (basketball style w/ smaller bots)! Way to go Eagles!!!!

A robot starts at one end and goes down a 35' track, through the 3 obstacles, and into the shack where our soldier is being held hostage. First dispose of the radioactive items and take them to the drop-zone, then come back for the soldier. The shack has live video back to a TV where the human operator is standing. Our school's robots will also have wireless cameras on most of them so the students can get a clear picture of the action on their laptops, also set up next to the human operator near the beginning.
Some have anti-rollover systems & independent suspensions.
And remember kids:Next post, manipulators and end effectors!

It was math and science through discoveries that got us here, now it needs to be human compassion and preparedness that gets us through this disaster and into the next generation.
So to the younger generations, use your time wisely, for tomorrow is not promised. Make good healthy decisions, love your family (if you're lucky enough to have one), and get some skills (survival and technological).
I tried to go from different types of music (math in sequence), so get the message any way you like. These songs (poetry put to music) are centered around educating yourself through the environment you are familiar with, whether it is the suburbs, the corn fields, the mountains, or the cities.
CADJEDI recommends your eardrums listen, not just hear, the following:
MOS DEF: 'New World Water', 'Mathematics'
Ben Harper: 'With My Own Two Hands'
John Lennon: 'Working Class Hero'
NAS: 'I Know I Can', 'The Message', 'Surviving The Times', 'Poison'
A Tribe Called Quest: 'Stressed Out', 'Check The Rhime'
Bad Religion: 'A Thousand More Fools', 'New Dark Ages'
