Students to Compete at VEX Worlds

April 16-18, 2015

WHAT: VEX Worlds is the largest international robotics event, bringing together 800 of the best and brightest student-run teams from 30 countries to compete over the course of three days in back-to-back robotics matches. VEX Worlds will include nearly 800 teams from over 400 VEX IQ Challenge, VEX Robotics Competition and VEX U events happening in cities around the world from June 2014 to March 2015. Teams will play the game VEX Skyrise and VEX IQ Highrise for the 2014-2015 season. Each game challenge is slightly different, requiring a student-built robot to pick up, stack and maneuver blocks, cubes and pegs around a field to score as many points possible. More than just an exercise in programming and driving robots, these tech-savvy students turn robotics into an engaging hands-on sport that is riveting to watch. For more information visit RobotEvents.com/championship. This event is free and open to the public.
