Awards will be given in 4 areas and winners will be featured on MINDSTORMS News. The award categories are: 1) DOMESTIC PET AWARD This award goes to the user who best replicates a common domestic pet. (For example: robotic dogs, cats, guinea pigs, hamsters, goldfish, etc.) 2) EXOTIC PET AWARD This award goes to the best example of an exotic robotic pet. Exotic pets can be fun, but can harm humans and other animals if not cared for properly. Make sure you create a fun, but safe exotic pet. (For example: robotic tropical birds, newts, chinchillas, sugar gliders, chameleons, etc.) 3) CREATIVE PET AWARD This award will go to the most creative and colorful robotic pet. Did you create a new species? Or is your model of a ferret or dog super innovative? We can’t wait to see the most creative pets. 4) INTERACTIVE PET AWARD How does your pet behave? After all, what’s the use of a pet if you can’t “pet” it or play with it? Get creative with how your pet will interact with people (and other animals too).
