Nothing But Net! VEX Competition 2016

The 2016 VEX Competition game has been announced and it looks to be an exciting challenge for young engineers. Robots must score balls into goals in the corners of the 12′ X 12′ field. Points are awarded based on how high off the ground the goal is, and whether or not the ball scored is a bonus ball.

Teams hoping to succeed in the competitions later this year should consider beginning the design process now. Every second counts. Teams that have time to move through a number of design iterations typically compete better later in the season.

Good luck to all those teams out there. We’ll see you at the competitions!
