Want Flocabulary to shout out your school in The Week in Rap?
For a shout-out on Friday, Febuary 26, 2016, entries are due Thursday, February 18, 2016, by 6 P.M. EST.
An Animal-Inspired Robot
This week we covered a robot designed to mimic a cockroach's movement. The robot can move through very small spaces and could help locate survivors after a building collapse. For this week's shout out contest, we want you to look to the animal kingdom for design inspiration. Choose an animal with a unique way of moving. Design a robot based on that animal's movement. What problem will your animal-inspired robot solve? Send us your design with a written description of when and how this robot would be used. .
Note: Students, your teachers must submit for you. Any video submissions should be horizontal.
By entering the contest, you agree to comply with the Official Rules.
Email your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org, including your name, school, city and contest entry. If a teacher is submitting more than one student entry, please submit all entries in a single email.
HOW IT WORKS
Each Thursday evening, we'll announce the week's contest challenge on this page (and in your Week in Rap email). You have a week to submit your entry. The contest closes when we post a new contest at 6 P.M. Thursday night. Winners will be notified on Friday by 12 noon, and they will have one week to submit a video or photo to be included in the Week in Rap video with the shout out.
We'll shout out the winner's school in the next Week in Rap video (two weeks after the initial contest was posted)!
A little fine print: You must be 18 years or older to enter the contest. Teachers and parents can submit on behalf of their students and children, and can submit as many times as they'd like. By submitting a photo or video that features any students, teachers are agreeing that they’ve obtained parental consent to have the likeness of their child posted on the internet in a way that’s accessible by the public.
