LEGO Robot Sumo – SUGO!

May 13, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm


SUGO is the not-so-ancient art of building Sumo Wrestling Robots using LEGO MINDSTORMS. The idea was born right here in Maryland! Don’t bother bringing anything but your imagination. First – form a team of 1-4 Elementary or Middle School age kids (these can be friends, family or even strangers). Register on the Library calendar. Show up at 11AM, then we build like crazy for 2 hours. The goal is to make the best Sumo Lego robot you can (within the rules). Then we check-in the robots and have a knock-down double-elimination tournament. When it’s all done, we break down the robots and everyone goes home exhausted.

Held on the second Saturday of each month, March through June.

Registration required through MCPL site, maximum of 8 teams (8 registrations), each team can have 1-4 students. Each event requires new registration though teams are allowed to sign up more than once.

Age Group(s): 7+, for elementary and middle school kids, At least one adult guardian is requested to attend per team.

Suggested skills requirements: Love of Legos and Robots
What should attendees bring or prepare: All materials will be provided
