What is the VEX Robotics Competition
In the VEX Robotics Competition, presented by the Robotics Education & Competition Foundation, teams of students are tasked with designing and building a robot to play against other teams in a game-based engineering challenge. Classroom STEM concepts are put to the test as students learn lifelong skills in teamwork, leadership, communications, and more. Tournaments are held year-round at the regional, state, and national levels and culminate at the VEX Robotics World Championship in May!

Behavior and Expectations
Robotics is a professional club. You are expected to act decent, follow directions, be helpful and follow good sportsmanship. We will not tolerate horseplay, laziness, rudeness, or poor sportsmanship in practices or at events. You are representing your school and you are representing yourself. If your grandmother or your pastor wouldn’t approve of your actions, we don’t need them in robotics. We will have a three strikes and you’re out policy that we will discuss during practice.
