FSU holds VEX Robotics Competition

Education

The VEX Robotics competition started Friday and will continue throughout the weekend at Fairmont State University. 

Three different events will be hosted over the course of two days. 

Teams from all over the east coast traveled to FSU to compete. 

This is said to be the largest university level VEX competition other than the world tournament. 

Twenty-one teams will be competing. 

“And they’re all vying for the coveted spots at the world tournament in Louisville in April. They’re going to be competing head to head, to try and earn the recognition of moving on,” said Todd Ensign, Program Manager of NASA’s Educator Resource Center and partner with VEX Robotics Competition. 

Saturday, the elementary VEX IQ and VRC high school robotics teams will be competing.
