Qualified High school teams will put STEM skills to the test at the VEX Robotics High School Regional Championship at the Schreiner University Event Center on Saturday, Feb 23, 2019, at 8:00 a.m.. The action-packed tournament will feature Regionals qualified teams who will compete with and against other schools in a series of back-to-back robotics challenges. Viewing this event is free and open to the public.
Participants will compete for the championship title by strategically executing the 2018-2019 VEX Robotics Competition game, Turning Point, driving robots they designed, built and programmed using VEX EDR. The 2018-2019 VEX Robotics Competition game, Turning Point, is played by stacking caps on posts, flipping caps, stacking balls on caps, toggling flags, throwing balls and by parking robots.
This event is one of a series of tournaments taking place internationally throughout the year. VEX Competitions are recognized as the largest and fastest growing competitive robotics programs for elementary schools, middle schools, high schools and college aged students around the world.
VEX Competitions represent over 20,000 teams from 45 countries that participate in more than 1,500 VEX Competition events worldwide. The season culminates each spring, with the highly-anticipated VEX Robotics World Championship, uniting top qualifying teams from local, state and international VEX Robotics events to crown World Champions.
The VEX Robotics Competition is managed by the Robotics Education & Competition Foundation and serves as a vehicle for students to develop critical life skills such as teamwork, leadership, and project management, honed through building robots and competing with like-minded students from the local community.
