During this period of isolation we created a contest for the community. The contest has a Star Wars theme due to the FIRST Robotics challenge this year and the involvement Star Wars has with technology. The contest has 3 levels of challenges; beginner, intermediate, and advanced.
To see our Contest policy, you can go here.
In Star Wars, there are many different communities with a high variety of creatures living in them. Your task for the Beginner Level is to:
- Create a new creature for a Star Wars community
- Show your creation by using STEAM in a creative way. (Some ways you could do this is by creating a drawing or model of the creature.)
- No functionality of your creature is required
Transportation is a very important and key aspect of the Star Wars universe. Communities utilize different methods of transportation to both get around and protect themselves from danger. Your task for the Intermediate Level is to:
- Create a new vehicle or form of transportation for a Star Wars character.
- Functionality of your creation is not required but could be a fun aspect to be able to include two different letters of STEAM which is needed to be eligible to win.
In Star Wars, some of the main characters have their own Robot sidekicks. R2-D2 and BB-8 are two of the better known droids of the Star Wars Universe. These two mini sidekicks assist the main characters in completing different missions. Your task for the Advanced Level is to:
- Create a new robot sidekick.
- The robot needs to have some functionality to be eligible to win.
- To include at least two of the letters of STEAM, you could write up/draw the step by step process that resulted in your creation.
