1 Technology for Seniors Using Technology to Improve the Quality of Life of Senior Citizens Maryland State 4-H Robotic Challenge 2014 LEGO Robotics 4-H Challenge Through the Technology for Seniors, 4-H members involved in robotics will create LEGO robots that complete tasks related to improving the quality of life of senior citizens on a 4 X 4 board. NXT based LEGO robots will automate wheelchairs, bring 4-H members and technology to senior centers and sort medicine. Teams will also complete a service project that will assist seniors in their community with technology. 1.0 Teams 1.1 Teams will consist of three to eight 4-H members. 1.2 Teams will register through the county extension offices with the State 4-H Robotics Committee from February 1 st to July 31 st. Once a team is registered through the county, the county can order game pieces ($30 per set). Team coaches will also be added to a list serv to receive information and updates about the game and state contest. The registration form is found on the Maryland State 4-H Robotics Challenge web page 1.5 State Fair Competition Up to two teams from each county and Baltimore City can be selected by each county/city to participate in the state competition in each age division of Junior, Intermediate and Senior.

2 1.5.2 County Extension educators will enter the team(s) into the State Fair Competition by July 31 st There will be a $20 registration fee for the state fair competition per team. Checks should be made payable to the Maryland 4-H Foundation The State 4-H Competition will be held on the first Sunday of the Maryland State Fair. Teams will be provided with a scheduled time for their project and technical presentations Each team will be provided with a 6 or 8 pit table space. The team should use the table to present their service project Teams will be divided into one of three divisions according to the three 4-H age divisions as of 1/1/14 (Jr 8-10 years old, Intermediate years old, Sr years old). Mixed age division members will be allowed to compete in the age division of the oldest member. All age divisions will compete in the same contest with awards given in each age division. 2.0 The Game Team members will construct a robot out of LEGOS that is controlled by an RCX, NXT or EV3 controller. The robot will autonomously perform specific tasks. The team will have 2 minutes and 30 seconds to perform as many tasks as possible. 2.1 Competition Kit The competition mat will be the Race Against Time Mat (NX990974) available from LEGO Education. LEGO parts and instructions to construct field mission models will be available once the team is registered through the county. Competition kits can be shared among multiple teams and remain the property of the local UME 4-H Youth Development Program.

3 2.2 Playing Field The field will be constructed of a ½ thick sheet of plywood with 2 X4 on edge to create a playing area of 45 X 45 (inside the 2 X4 frame). The mat (48 X 48 ) will be installed between the 2X4 edge and the plywood. The field includes the 14.5 X 14.5 base area. The playing field will be on a table 28 to 32 tall. 3.0 Robots 3.1 Allowed Materials Robots must be constructed using the LEGO RCX, NXT or EV3 controllers and any additional official LEGO parts. Non-LEGO parts will not be allowed. The robot must be programmed with LEGO Mindstorms, RoboLab, NXT, or EV3 software (any version) to perform the task autonomously. A maximum of the following motors and sensors may be used: a. 2 touch sensors b. 2 light sensors c. 1 Ultrasonic sensor d. 1 - Lamp e. 3 - rotation sensors (RCX only) f. 3 motors The following may not be used: a. Paint, tape, glue, and oil b. Stickers are not allowed c. Remote controls of any type 3.2 Robot Size The robot must fit completely inside of the base area of the board which measures 14.5 X 14.5 and must not be taller than After the robot leaves the base area, it may expand to any dimension.

4 3.2.1 Robot in the base area (green outlined area in the southeast corner of the mat.) 3.3 Robot Operation Handling the Robot The team members may only handle the robot while the robot is in the base area. Once the robot leaves the base area the members cannot touch or in any way influence the movement of the robot until it comes back to base without penalty Robot in Base While in base, members may change programs or change parts of the robot. The robot will be considered in base as soon as any part of the robot crosses into the base Mission Objects in Base Any objects that are to be brought back to base must cross into the base before a member touches the robot. Any mission that was in progress will be terminated if a member touches or in any way interferes with the robot or LEGO model. Teams may re-run the mission, but game pieces will remain where they are when the robot was touched. The robot may leave base and return as many times as time allows.

5 3.3.4 Touch Penalties If the robot is touched outside of the base area it must be brought back to base immediately and will be assessed a touch penalty (see 5.8 for details on touch penalties). 4.0 Game Rules 4.1 Mission Models Mission models will be provided as part of the competition kit. Instructions for construction of mission models will be provided. It is the team s responsibility to construct mission models correctly. The field(s) at the state competition may not be altered (consideration will be given if discussed with the referee). Mission models will be provided at the competition, therefore teams should not bring mission models to the competition table Starting Field Set Up

6 4.2 Robot Rounds Each robot will play three rounds with the highest score of the three rounds counting toward the final awards. Each robot round will last for 2 minutes 30 seconds. The round will be started at the referees call and the referee at the end of the round will turn off the robot. Teams will be given a minimum of 10 minutes between rounds. 4.3 Robot Operators Two members will be allowed at the table during the robot rounds. Additional team members must stand in the designated area and may tag in and out during the round. 5.0 Missions Missions are described as the following: 5.1 Retrieve Wheel Chair Robot must bring the wheel chair back to the base area.
