General Challenge Rules

Only the Lego Spike Prime Kit provided may be used to build the robot. Uses of extra materials or parts are not allowed in the robot.

No use of glue, tape wire, etc. is allowed to be used in the project. No parts may be cut, drilled or otherwise modified.

The team must document their project from start to finish in a written report. In addition, they must submit a final maximum 10 minute video outlining the struggles and achievements encountered in the process. The final functioning robot should be shown completing the task. Instructions for submitting the written report and the final video will be found on the OIYRC website.

Each team (maximum of 5 members) must be present at Goff Hall for the Challenge in order to keep the robot. Any team that misses the event will be required to return the kit in its entirety.
