As the core activity of MakeX, the namesake MakeX Robotics Competition provides exciting, challenging and high-level competitions in the spirit of creativity, teamwork, fun and sharing. It is committed to inspiring young people to learn Science (S), Technology (T), Engineering (E), Art (A) and Mathematics (M) and apply such knowledge in solving real-world problems.
2019 MakeX Robotics Competition, themed City Lights, challenges young people to solve real-world problems we may face every day including environmental pollution, food safety, recycling, viral infection and more by applying STEAM concepts.
2019 MakeX Robotics Competition is divided into 2 programs based on different difficulty levels and targeting at various age groups.

MakeX Starter is a multitasking competition for young people between 6 to 16 years old, its theme of 2019 Season is “City Guardian.” It is divided into two parts: automatic stage and manual stage. Contestants can improve logical thinking by graphical programming; learn more collaborative strategy by working with their alliance; develop problem solving skills through the implementation of electronic parts, mechanical structure and software programming. The mission design of City Guardian is focusing on encouraging collaboration and communication between two alliances and thus inspiring contestants to develop good social skills from an early age.
Keywords：11-18 years old; confrontation; strategical analysis; logical thinking
MakeX Challenge is a confrontational competition for young people between 11 to 18 years old, its theme of 2019 season is “Courageous Traveler.” In this competition there are two camps: Red alliance and Blue alliance, each one is combined by two teams. During the competition, contestant needs to complete multiple missions in a short time to obtain points, including collecting balls, climbing highland, attacking bottles, etc. Multiple mission design provides more possibilities to build robots and set higher requirements for strategic thinking ability of young people. Taking flag-insertion in the final stage for example, it is a mission that can turn the tide. To conclude, Courageous Traveler is mainly focusing on improving young people’s ability of design, precise control, software programming, and strategy analysis.
