VexIQ Highly Competitive Team – Middle School

The VEXIQ Challenge is an annual competition which includes a grades 4 & 5 Division and a Middle School Division.

  • Our 2019 Fall Highly Competitive Middle School Team is open for students in grades 6 through 8. 
  • We do have a Highly Competitive Elementary School Team. Go here for details on that team.
  • Space on this team is limited. Do not wait to enroll. We anticipate filling up quickly.
  • VEXIQ HC Team members will design and build a robot which can score the most points on this year’s challenge board by remote control and with autonomous programming.
  • Programming is learned and executed using a language known as RobotC – which is a version of C.
  • Participants will work on the construction of the VEXIQ robotic system, including the use of sensors, and will be responsible for an “Engineer’s Notebook” where they will document their odyssey.
  • Our HC Teams will compete in local competitions – dates TBD. We anticipate 2 competitions and are very confident that at least one competition will take place in Boca Raton.
