Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde - August 22, 2009

Looking for a summer project? Looking for a challenge for your robot skills. Want to prove you can do two things at one time?

Come play Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde at the Downingtown Educational Center on August 22, 2009.

Come play Elevation in the morning and Face Off in afternoon. BUT the same robot must play both games. Minor repairs are OK, major changes are not. Prove to the East Coast that you have the smarts to build a robot that can play two different games.

Doors open at 8AM, first match is at 9AM, awards at 4 PM.


The rules are simple, if it would be a Vex legal part or a FTC legal part for their Face Off or Elevation games, use it. For example this means that FTC teams can use sliders and treads from the Vex sets and the Vex teams can double up on the battery or create custom formed plastic parts.

Robots must fit in the 18" cube.

There will not be autonomous for either event. We will be going old school on the driving, the referee will go 1-2-3 Start to begin the 2 minute driving period for both contests. 3-2-1 STOP will end, and drivers are to stop driving at that point. FTC robots should make sure they have a solid Blue Tooth connection, competition crystals will be available for the VRC robots.

Scoring will follow the rules for each event.


Event is at the Downingtown Educational Center, 335 Manor Ave, Downingtown PA. Entry fee is $20 per robot, there will be food at the event. Come and celebrate the end of school and the start of summer with one last VRC/FTC robot event!

Too far away?

Contact me about shipping your robot, there are 10 teams close to Downingtown, we can find you drivers. A reminder that we are only 2 hours from either the Delaware or New Jersey beaches and from Washington DC or the Poconos. We can be a stop on your family vacation before school starts.
