The robotics venue is a great gateway into the program. Students will come to IT-Olympics with a primary challenge built. They will compete in the primary challenge in the morning and compete in a single real-time challenge in the afternoon.
We are very excited to announce our collaboration with Sphero. Starting in Fall 2021, we will use Sphero RVR kits. We have created an innovative, fun and sustainable platform for the Robotics and Smart-IT venues. Sphero products have many more options for students, educators and IT-Adventures Support Staff. Sphero products will also be used in both the Robotics and Smart-IT venues, which will reduce costs for your club if hosting both venues.
