We will form teams of 2-3 students who will collaborate on all aspects of building, programming and driving the bot used to compete in virtual and /or in person VEX IQ competitions (with the goal) to qualify for the State VEX IQ championship in Spring of 2023 (date TBA). This is a competitive experience. Season runs from September - March (end date TBA and determined by qualifying success at region and / or state championships). Transportation to out of town contests (including state) is provided by parents of team members. Information re: tournaments, qualifying results and formats for competition have yet to be announced.

The VEX IQ program is an early experience for elementary youth, interested in competing in VRC (VEX Robotics Challenge) in middle school or high school.
