RARC 2021-2022- Reaching Beyond the Moon
Get your bots ready… RARC robotics competitions are back!
The RARC committee has exciting news and important updates to share with our RARC friends.
RARC competitions are incredible fun! We missed watching students run their strategically built and programmed robots. We are looking forward to this and so much more when we bring RARC Competitions back this year!
Competition One- Virtual
In an abundance of caution, the RARC committee has decided that competition one will be a virtual robotics competition with teams submitting a video of their robots autonomously completing tasks. Decisions for competition two and competition three have not been made yet. The decision to return to in person competitions will take into consideration guidance from the CDC and the Louisiana Department of Health.
Our website is currently being updated for our virtual robotics competition. Over the next two weeks, please continue to check this website or our Facebook page for more information and updates. Guidelines for all divisions will be released in the middle of September.
LEGO Robotics Platforms
You may be aware that LEGO® is retiring the Mindstorm EV3 this summer and replacing it with SPIKE Prime. Schools do not need to purchase this new robot to participate in RARC. For the elementary and middle school divisions, we will continue to accept NXT and EV3 robots. The new SPIKE Prime will also be allowed.
We can’t wait to see our RARC teams back in action this school year as they compete in RARC 2021-2022 Reaching Beyond the Moon!
