I hope everyone is ready for another year of exciting robotics with VEX-IQ. There are a number of events scheduled for this upcoming year, 6 competition events and 5 robotics workshops. This year’s competition within our B.C. region will be quite competitive, as one of our teams from last year was the international winner of the middle school division – Team Work Challenge.
