To mark the unveiling of the RoboRescue Challenge, Pitsco Education is awarding eight event sets valued at $800 each: four to participating teams in each of the two early adopting states. In the RoboRescue Challenge, high school and post-secondary teams compete in creating remotely operated robots from the TETRIX Robotics System that help first responders find survivors in the immediate aftermath of a simulated disaster staged within a custom-designed playing field. Via video feed from a robot-mounted camera, student operators deliver critical life-support supplies to trapped disaster victims.
