In VEX Robotics Club, teams of four students are tasked with designing and building a robot to play against each other in a game-based engineering challenge, Crossover. Two robots compete as an alliance in 60 second long teamwork matches, working collaboratively to score points. Teams also compete in two additional challenges; The Robot Skills Challenge, where one robot takes the field to score as many points as possible under drive control; and The Programming Skills Challenge, where one robot scores as many points as possible autonomously, without any driver inputs. Classroom STEM concepts are put to the test on the playing field as students learn lifelong skills in teamwork, leadership, communications and more.
