Welcome to the 5th annual WV VEX U Qualifier - one of the largest VEX U events in the world! This year the WV qualifier will be run as a remote skills-only event.
Each team will be allocated a 20-minute block to complete inspection and their 6 skills runs, and will also schedule a time to be interviewed by judges. Blocks will be scheduled after registration closes.
Teams are storngly encouraged to complete inspection on Friday to save time.
NOTE: This event will be run concurrently with WV VRC Qualifier #5. If the total number of teams registered for both events is more than we can process in one day, we will add additional time slots on Friday afternoon for some teams to complete their skills runs.
Meetings will be held via Zoom, and the join link will be sent to registered teams via email.
NOTE: All times on this agenda are in Eastern Standard Time.
Tuesday, February 16: Engineering notebooks due; deadline to schedule times for judging interviews and skills runs.
Friday, February 19:
3:00 - 5:00 PM: Optional drop-in robot inspection. Teams that do not complete their inspection on Friday will complete the inspection procedure at the beginning of their block on Saturday.
3:00 - 6:00 PM: Judging Interviews
(NOTE: Inspection may be moved to earlier in the day, and some skills run time slots added in the afternoon, if necessary due to the total number of teams signed up for both our events on this weekend.)
Saturday, February 20:
9:00 AM - 12:00 PM: Skills runs begin. Teams will be scheduled in 20 minute blocks to complete inspection (if they didn't complete it on Friday) and attempt up to 3 programming and 3 driving skills runs.
