Event History

In March 2009, Saskatchewan Polytechnic introduced the myRobot Rumble SUMObot Challenge.  The event was a smashing success.  With $11,000 in tuition money and iPods up for grabs, electronics programs at Saskatchewan Polytechnic campuses in Moose Jaw and Saskatoon hosted more than 160 high school students for their first-ever SUMObot robotic competition.

Saskatchewan Polytechnic provided the schools with a robot kit that contained enough parts for two SUMO robots. High school teachers worked with their students to build, program and test their robots.

At the fifth competition in March of 2013, almost 200 students from forty-nine high schools across Saskatchewan registered for the competition.

Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s myRobot Rumble competition gives high school students, working in teams of two, the chance to demonstrate their problem-solving skills, technical knowledge of electronics and teamwork as they competed against other students from across the province.

Similar to traditional Japanese sumo wrestling matches, two SUMObots face-off against each other in a ring. The goal is to stay in the ring while pushing the opposing robot out of the ring. The robot that stays in the ring the longest wins the match. The top prize for the competition was a $1,500 entrance award and an iPod Touch for each team member.

While the focus of the event is the competition, students also have the chance to tour Saskatchewan Polytechnic electronics programs and gain knowledge of potential careers in the field of electronics and telecommunications.

Saskatchewan Polytechnic electronics grads work with business, industry and government employers in areas such as manufacturing, communications, resource processing and consulting.   The targeted programs include:  Electronics Technician, Computer Engineering Technology, Electrical Engineering Technology and Electronic  Systems Engineering Technology.
