I need to build a 38kHz IR beacon to test Mini-sumo robots.?

My students are, as a class, building Sumovore robots from Solarbotics. I would like to build a 38kHz IR beacon that we can use to test each robot and perhaps use as a 'sled' for pushing contests. Does anyone have a very clear schematic, how-to and parts list for something like this?

i would se go to your local libary and get out a book called "junkbots,bugbots,and bots on wheels" it has a mimi sumo and the other robots in it can give ideas also
