The objective of this 1 vs. 1 robot challenge is to be the first robot to reach and climb the hill represented by a coloured dot on the bridge at the end of the arena. Before reaching the hill, each robot will have to navigate through a maze with varying obstacles. If at the end of the time limit no robot has reached the hill, the robot closest to the hill will be declared the winner. As obstacles are subject to change in position and in number, robot design and programs that exhibit general maze-solving abilities are encouraged.

Hi everyone,We hope you and your families are all well. Over the past month, we have been assessing the interest and feasibility of alternative solutions to host the ORC this year, given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.After reviewing survey responses, alternative formats, and public health guidance, we are sad to announce that there will be no competition this year. While our mission is to expose students to STEM, your health and safety is our number one priority, especially in these uncertain times.While there is no competition this year, we remain dedicated to our mission and still want you to explore STEM while at home. Check out Virtual Ventures (Virtual Ventures Summer Camps and Programs) for some STEM at home experiments. Please also stay tuned on our social media pages, as we develop and post online tutorials.Stay safe, keep practicing physical distancing, and wash your hands regularly!
