The Advanced Robotics Challenge (ARC) is our newest category. The games are designed to test older and more experienced student’s engineering and programming skills to the limit.
In 2015 and 2016 we ran the Tetrastack challenge. The new game for 2019 and 2020 will be the last ARC game.
The 2020 season will be the last season we run ARC competitions.
