This Year’s Game:
We will be using the VEX IQ Highrise game. Both VEX IQ and LEGO robots can compete! We will have claw bots of VEX IQ for you to use to compete if you wish! You can sign up for Remote control or Autonomous. The games will be scored separately.
Other games will include:
- A grand challenge like game where students will not know the programming or building components until they arrive. They will then have to program and build to complete the challenge. Each student, or group of students, that completes this challenge will be winners of this competition. You should know how to do things such as forward, turn, backwards, line follow.
- Pick up the most VEX Highrise game cubes at once.
Must be able to start with the blocks on the ground and then raise them into the air.
- A robot Parade where the robot must be able to follow the line, must be able to stop when it gets close to the float in front of it.
- Robot Virtual Worlds – Beltway competition where you will play a modified version of the VEX Highrise game.
