The VEX Robotics Competition has more than 10,000 teams from 32 countries playing in over 750 tournaments worldwide. Each year, an exciting engineering challenge is presented in the form of a game. Students, with guidance from their teachers and mentors, build innovative robots and compete year-round in a variety of matches.
Teams learn valuable engineering skills, students gain life skills such as teamwork, perseverance, communication, collaboration, project management, and critical thinking.
The VEX Robotics Competition prepares students to become future innovators with 95% of participants reporting an increased interest in STEM subject areas and pursuing STEM-related careers.
If you are in Auckland come along to the Vodafone Events Centre in Manukau to see some serious robot action. Sunday afternoon will see the finals with division games on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
