This could be fully autonomous or fully controlled or a combo of the two.

I am in southern Indiana by the way.
Interesting yes, practical for youngsters? not really. I suggest doing what FIRST robotics does. Most yearly competitions start off with a 30-60 second 'autonomous' round, followed by the longer R/C round. More points can be gained in the autonomous round, but it's not a requirement to do it, just incentive.
We did FIRST this year and did halfway decent for the first year that any of us
