The theme of the competition was "Blue Planet", which tested the player's engineering skills, multi-tasking logical thinking and the ability to collaborate strategically. Students were required to design a robot with monitoring and decontamination functions. With the help of sensors and pre-written programs, it could operate accurately according to automatic program instructions to complete different tasks. The competition comprised cooperation tasks and independent tasks for scoring, which the team with the highest score and the shortest completion time would be the winner.
