2018 STEM/SUMO Statewide Competition

8am – 5pm
3rd – 12th grades


Mississippi Robotics is a non-profit organization involved in training youth and teachers in science, technology, math, and engineering through practical hands-on activities. This STEM/SUMO Competition is designed to exercise and measure the students’ ability in several important areas involving skill, critical thinking, and strategy.

As we have done in our last two competitions students will be awarded 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th places with STEM Points that can be redeemed at our STEM Store at the end of the competition. We expect over $4,000 in STEM gifts to be in the store.

Groups of four or more must sign up to be eligible for the team events. This competition is expected to be limited to 300 students due to facility space.

All applications must include a $10 fee per student and must be paid on-line or by a mailed in check before any student names will be accepted.

All fees are attached to a particular student and are non-refundable. Before March 28th a student can be replaced, after March 28th no additions or changes can be made. Apply early. No lunch will be offered at the competition. A one-hour break will be taken.  Coaches, please consider bringing sack lunches as local restaurant/fast food services are not near Nissan. Nissan is considering have some lunch trucks available.

Seven individual events (SUMO, Tool ID, Math, Science, Programmable Maze, College Info, Mystery Event)
Three team events (Bike tear down and build, Chess, Employable Skills)
Any of the above events may change as necessary for the competition.  Near-final event names will be available on-line on or before January 1, 2018 and complete event rules and descriptions will be available on-line on or before February 28, 2018.
