So you had a great time with FIRST Lego League, but will soon be too old to compete in FLL? Why not come out and see what the VEX Robotics Competition has to offer. With bigger robots, more local tournaments, a combination of autonomous and teleoperated competition and full-on robot-to-robot interaction it might be just what you are looking for to take your robotics competition experience to the next level!
A great opportunity to see this season’s game “Gateway” in action will be on Saturday, December 10, at Cambie Secondary school in Richmond. Over 50 teams from Washington State, Vancouver Island, the Okanagan, Fraser Valley and Metro Vancouver will be in attendance. BC and Washington state teams have already proven themselves as some of the top competitors in the VEX world, so this is likely to be one of the toughest tournaments held in North America to date.
Competition matches will run from 10:00 to 5:00, with some of the best viewing times in the early to mid-afternoon. Admission is free, so come on out and see how you can make the VEX Robotics Competition part of your robotics future.
Cambie Secondary is located at 4151 Jacombs Road (Cambie and Jacombs), just south of IKEA in Richmond.
