Elegoo Competition Final Update

Thank you to everyone who participated in the WWFIRST Elegoo Competition! We know that everyone was tired of online meetings but we hope that the Elegoo Competition provided some fun opportunities to learn about robotics.

The championship competition had some very capable robots and in Division 1, there was only 1 point difference between our winner and 2nd place robot.

The full match results and videos will be shared through our Discord Channel.

A list of all the awards is available here.

We have a number of prizes and decided to base our awards on those awarded by FRC, and planned to award each of the FRC awards in each division. Since there were fewer robots than there were awards in each division, we chose the award we felt was best suited to each robot.

Winners of each of the awards are eligible to receive one of the following prizes. We will contact each award winner for their selection(s).

Hexbug Balancing Boxing Bot (3 available)
Avengers Coding Kit (4 available)
LittleBits space Rover Inventor Kit (2 available)
LittleBits Electronic Music Inventor Kit (3 available)

Thank you again to everyone who took part in the competition!  Hopefully the 2021-2022 FRC season will be closer to normal.

Elegoo Competition Awards

Division 1:

Challenge Champion: Tristan from Team 2702 (80 points)

Innovation in Control Award: Tristan from Team 2702
Tristan’s robot was able to score a cup in Autonomous, but his code to improve the driving sensitivity of his robot was key to his success in clearing all cups from the field.

Industrial Design Award: Laila from Team 2702
Laila incorporated LEGO pieces to build a very effective elevator that allowed her to reliably stack cups and place them on the platform.

Quality Award: Mathieu from Team 4917
Mathieu wanted his elevator to be extremely reliable and strong. Incorporating triangular bracing into his 3D printed elevator components ensured that the elevator would not twist or jam.

Excellence in Engineering Award: Holden from Team 4917
Holden’s robot evolved significantly through the competition, each week gaining more functionality until he had a fully functional elevator.

Division 2:

Challenge Champion: Sonia from Team 4917 (74 points)

Autonomous Award: Jessica from Team 4917
Jessica’s robot was able to successfully score 3 cups in autonomous and still make it to the D Zone!

Creativity Award: Sonia from Team 4917
Sonia’s pincer gripper was simple and effective, enabling Sonia to score all cups with seconds to spare!

Quality Award: Connor from Team 4917
Connor’s very simple “cup catcher” was effective and solid, eliminating any chance of a failure during competition.

Elegoo Competition Update

Due to the lower number of participants, the Championship will run differently.

Here are the relevant changes:

  1. The Virtual Championship Show Case has been cancelled
  2. Each participant can chose from one of two options for the Championship game:
    – Use the highest scored game video
    – Send in one extra (4th) game video
  3. We will still have awards for participants selected by the highest score and judges.

The tournament manual will be available reflecting these changes.
