Winter Camp / Planning / Edit Activity
Describe the Activity: This one might be a little out there but the idea is that the teams get a list of components with which to build a digging robot for their mine. At meals we compare standings and allow changes and improvements.
Things below this line are optional, but including them is a good idea if you'd like to see your activity held at Winter Camp.
Typical Duration: Choose One
Skills Emphasized: Physical
Category: Choose One
Degree of Difficulty: Choose One
Preferred Location: Choose One

Why would this be fun?It would pit mind vs. mind as teams tried to adapt their robot to be the best in changing conditions.
What are the basic rules?Robots are built by choosing components from a list. Based on their components and conditions, they do a certain amount of mining.
They can use mining and perhaps victories in other ream events to modify their robot probably once or twice a day.
Are there any variations we should consider?
What special equipment will we need?: Component cards and game rules.
