Tutorials

Getting Started can sometimes be daunting.  These tutorials are designed, not to give the *best* solution to a challenge, but instead introduce you to some of the concepts that are necessary to solve the bigger challenge.  Think of them as a launching pad to better solutions!

 

Generic Robot Designs

These robot designs are a good place to start with robotics.  They can generally work for all different challenges with only minimal changes.  While these are great for getting started, make sure you read the rules of each challenge carefully to make ensure your robot design is compliant.
