Intelitek proudly celebrated our 6th consecutive year hosting the
state SKILLS New Hampshire Mobile Robotics Technology contest held on March 13th at the Seacoast School of Technology in Exeter, NH. Intelitek supports three of 46 total SKILLS NH State contests including Mobile Robotics Technology, Automated Manufacturing Technology and Robotics and Automation Technology. The 2015 event challenged teams of two to design a robot that could move, lift and stack colored cubes into designated color-coded scoring zones within a two-minute time limit. The round is split into a sixty second autonomous and 60 second operator control period. Judging criteria are based on the quality of an Engineering Notebook competitors share with industry based judges, evaluation of a student prepared presentation, and robot scoring performance. The winning team is invited to Louisville, Kentucky to compete against approximately 40 state winners for the title of National Champion making this Friday the 13th a very lucky day for the winning team.
Intelitek offers Robotics Engineering Curriculum (REC) which contains everything needed to begin a successful classroom program with hands-on activities and compelling online curriculum while teaching students the STEM theory to design a robot capable of competing at a National level. REC embeds easyC programming software within the curriculum allowing users to produce effective C code programs in a short period of time.
