SUMObot Challenge Rules

Team Requirements

  • Each team will consist of two grade 9 - 12 students and one robot.
  • Team members must be Saskatchewan high school students registered in grades 9 - 12.
  • Each school is allowed to register 2 teams.  Additional teams may be submitted for registration, and will be accepted based on availability of space. Additional team acceptance will be prioritized on a first come, first served basis. Notifications of acceptance for your additional teams will be sent starting February 1.

Robot Kit Distribution

  • The robot kits will be distributed upon receipt of the high schools' completed registration form. Schools that have not participated previously will be shown preference provided they apply by the school registration deadline date. After this date, kits will be distributed in the order registrations are received until all kits have been allocated.
  • Each high school will be provided one robot kit at no charge provided the school sends at least one team that registers to compete. Each kit contains two robots, which means each school could send two teams. If the school does not send a team to compete, the school can pay $280 for the kit or return it to Saskatchewan Polytechnic unopened. 

Robot Requirements

Modifications to robots will be allowed provided these modifications adhere to the rules specified in Section 6: Robot Requirements and Section 8: Compliance of the Saskatchewan Polytechnic Sumo Robot Competition Rules document. Saskatchewan Polytechnic will not provide extra parts for modifications.

  • If time permits, robots may be reprogrammed between matches. Teams will supply their own equipment for reprogramming.
