Tracing robot contests cover a great variety. Fabricating robots to participate in these contests and achieve good results necessitates acquiring divers types of special mechatronics technology. Setting participation in a robot contest as a concrete objective positively influences education because students become willingly to set about fabricating robots by acquiring technical knowledge. This paper presents an example of mechatronics education implemented by participation in a robot contest.
