Allgemeine information

Purdue SIGBots is excited to host the Purdue SIGBots Slam and Jam! We will be hosting the competition at the historic Purdue Armory building. This is a large venue expansion from past years of SIGBots' events and will allow for all teams to get extra breathing room and allow for a higher level of competition. This is the second year in this location as we hope to make the competition stronger than ever before, and better for all competitors. 

Purdue's Team, the ACM SIGBots, will be in attendance and welcomes any VEXU team who wants to compete. They will also be ready to answer any technical questions teams may have with VEX hardware and/or PROS.

Whether you are a new team or a veteran team, we welcome you to join us!
