Green Bay – More than 720 leading elementary, middle, and high school students and mentors from around the state will unite at the Resch Expo Center on March 11-12 for the 2022-2023 VEX IQ Competition game (elementary and middle school) Slap Shot and the VEX Robotics Competition (VRC) game (middle school and high school), Spin Up. The action-packed tournament will feature more than 120 teams competing with and against other schools in a series of qualifying matches leading to the finals. Participants will compete for the championship title by strategically executing the 2022-2023 games, driving robots they designed, built and programmed using VEX IQ or VEX EDR.
The Wisconsin VEX Robotics State Championships are hosted by Fox Valley Competitive Robotics, Inc, a non-profit with the mission to promote STEM education through competitive robotics throughout Wisconsin.
This event is one of a series of tournaments taking place internationally throughout the year. VEX Competitions are recognized as the largest and fastest-growing competitive robotics programs for elementary, middle, high school, and college-aged students around the world. There are more than 23,000 VEX teams from 61 countries that participate in over 2,500 events worldwide. The season culminates each spring, with the VEX Robotics World Championship, uniting top qualifying teams from local, state, and international events to crown world champions.
The VEX Robotics Competition is managed by the Robotics Education & Competition Foundation and serves as a vehicle for students to develop critical life skills such as teamwork, leadership and project management, honed through building robots and competing with like-minded students from the local community.
