About the Design Challenge

Teams participating in the social robot design challenge will create a prototype of a social robot. You should design a robot that you can imagine living in your school. The robot’s main purpose is to help students deal with stress. 

What is a Prototype

A prototype is a starting point for a design. It’s the beginning idea or model of what a design could become. A prototype does not have to work as a final system would. But it should suggest what the final version might do.

Prototypes help explore ideas for design and get feedback from other people on a design. Prototypes can be hand drawn. Learn more about Prototyping
