2010 Competition Rules

The 2010 Warman Competition was held from 25-27 September 2010 at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney. The teams worked on project BATON.

The challenge this year was to design, build and prove a prototype system in a laboratory environment that serves to transport a payload across a disjointed and cambered track.

This year, 14 teams competed. The team from the University of Western Australia won with its device constructed almost entirely from Styrofoam. Second place went to James Cook University and third to the University of Technology Sydney. The Judges award for simplicity in design went to the University of Auckland.
