Game = Stacks


Game = "STACKS"


Build an autonomous robot that starts in the “Start Box” and moves a block (or blocks) from the “Loading Zone” to the “Stack” as fast and as accurate as possible. See the game picture for reference. The goal is to autonomously move the blocks and arrange them in a stack/pile taller than 12 inches / 30 cm.

Note – this means that the stacked blocks will be taller than the starting size of the robot stacking them!



Max Robot Starting Size = 12 inches ( 30 cm ) cubed

Game Board Size = 36 inches ( 90 cm ) by 12 inches ( 30 cm)

Max Block Size = 4 inches ( 10 cm ) cubed - can be smaller

In order to win you must post a video clearly showing:

  • when the robot is turned on
  • the robots run
  • when the robot is stopped
  • the Stack height
  • the LMR logo.

The Loading Zone Starting Height: must be shorter than 12 inches ( 30cm).

No limit on parts used.

No other rules defined.
