This year’s competition is called Spin Up and points are scored by scoring disks, or spinning foam rollers mounted to the field perimeter. Hundreds of competition events are held annually around the world where teams can participate in a variety of skill-based and judged events, like demonstrating a Programming Skills autonomous routine or presenting a STEM Research Project. By attending these competition events, your team has the chance to qualify to attend the 2023 VEX Robotics World Championship, which will be in Dallas, Texas.
Teams compete in the Robot Skills Competition where one robot takes the field to score as many points as possible. These matches consist of Solo Driving Skills Matches, Cooperative Driving for two teams, and Coding Skills Matches, which are autonomous with limited human interaction. The flagship Teamwork Challenge emphasizes the value of collaboration over combat by pairing randomly selected teams together to achieve the highest combined score possible.
