Turtle Tank

The robot below is a model of last year's winner. Your goal this year is to create a robot similar to this one or even better if you dare! That robot had spikes on the side an in the top freeze ray in order to puncture other robots. There were two freeze rays so we could stop its competitors, and the wheels also had treads on it so the robot could navigate easily on the ice arena. The army men on the tank were also carrying small lasers to shoot at others.

Charity

World Wildlife Fund

All of the profits from this event will be going towards the World Wildlife Fund, to support and protect endangered animals such as the polar bear. Donation box will be set up at the merchandise table. Visit wwf.org for more information.

Polar Bears

Loss of habitat due to climate change is the polar bear's biggest threat. Sea ice is melting rapidly from global warming. They must travel long distances in order to survive.

Safety

We have hired 4 security guards; 2 will be inside the arena, 1 will watch the doors, and 1 will watch the parking lot.


In case of an emergency, all personnel and fans inside the building will move in an orderly fashion through the front/emergency doors to the far end of the parking lot. Security guards will help in case of injury or violence in the arena. Security personnel will also be directing traffic in the parking lot and watching the ticket booth/parking lot to ensure the safety of patrons.
