Fort Bend ISD is proud to announce the 2022-23 theme for the Coding and Robotics competitions! Please view the video for the theme, contest categories, and due dates. The full rules may be found below.
The FBISD Robotics Competition is a robo challenge where campus teams compete separately on identical competition areas. Teams work to complete their tasks as efficiently and effectively as possible. The robot is the cornerstone of the competition.Teams design, build a prototype, program, and test their robots prior to the competition date. Teams compete virtually using the completed robots. If necessary, the top teams complete a second round of competition to decide a champion. All robots must be built and programmed by students with sponsors or mentors serving only as advisors.
Round 1: Virtual competition will start the week of April 4th, 2023.
Round 2: If necessary, additional rounds will begin the week of April 9th for tie-breakers and establishing the final award placement.
Important Note: For both the elementary and middle school competitions, schools may only use the EV3 (#5003400) or the LEGO Spike Prime (#45345) provided by the district.
Video Game or Animation
Participants will use Scratch or other coding software to develop an E-rated, school appropriate animation or video game project. The project should be interesting and visually appealing. Please see the competition details for more information.
Students may use coding software such as Turtle Art or Scratch to design a work of art that incorporates the theme. The art must use coding to be completed and not be art created in something such as paint. Please see the competition details for more information.
Projects for the Coding Competitions will be submitted via a Schoology Course that will be made available in the spring. There are folders based on levels in the course and then an assignment with an example portfolio and directions for the animation, video game, or art submission.
Please see the Coding Competition Submission Process document for information related to the submission process.
