Han Gong'en, Competition tutor of Gaoxin First Middle School, told the reporter that at the competitions the competing robots were required to throw the scoring articles (six-pointed stars or cloth parcels) to the score area in any ways they thought fit within 2 minutes. This led to various unusual ideas in the competitions. For every competition, there were 15 seconds auto-run (robots operated automatically with their sensors) and 105 seconds manual operation (the robots were under the control of competitors). The competitions are not only examinations for robot automatic programming capabilities of the students, they are also an evaluation of the operation skills for controlling the robots, good psychological qualities and capabilities to solve problems on site. In the meantime, cooperation among the team members are also crucial to scoring high. "Through practice, our team made countless changes to the programming and design of the robot, they made lots of efforts, and did not stop concrete modifications until the night before the competition", said Han, the tutor.
