General Info

WPI is excited to be hosting our first ever VEX U event at the WPI Campus Center. After the success of the WPI signature event, WPI is eager to support VEX and VEX U going forward. To help with this, registration for this event is only $5 per team. All that we ask is that you attend, compete, and have a blast!

Each team will have a minimum of a 1/2 table and power in their pit area.  Final schedule including number of competition fields, skill fields, and practice fields will be made available closer to the date of the event.

We are happy to announce that we have been awarded one (1) qualification spot to VEX Worlds pending registration of at least six (6) teams. UPDATE: The event's allocation of Worlds qualification spots has been increased to three (3). The spots will go to the Excellence award winner, as well as the Event Finalist and Event Champion.
