Welcome to the CREATE Foundation U.S. Open Robotics Championship. The U.S. Open has grown into one of the largest robotics tournaments in the world and we hope you can join us in 2017.
We expect the 2017 U.S. Open to be the biggest and best yet. Regular season tournaments from around the world are qualifiers for this signature event. We wish all teams the very best of luck.
There are six distinct divisions in this multifacted event. This is the VEX IQ - Middle School Division. If you are looking for one of our other divisions: VRC- High School, VRC Middle School, VEX IQ Elementary School, CREATE Jr, or the Open Division, please return to the main RobotEvents page and select the proper event.
Please be advised that you will have 3 weeks from the date of your qualifying tournament to register for the U.S. Open. Once registered, you will have 3 weeks to pay. Teams that miss the payment deadline will be moved to the wait list. If any teams are invited off the wait list they will be notified, at the earliest, mid February.
CREATE Sponsored and Co-sponsored events require teams to understand and accept a Tournament Code of Conduct. This Code of Conduct will help clarify the role of students and adults at CREATE events. Please be sure to read through the entire CREATE Tournament Code of Conduct and be sure that all members of your team understand it as well. We believe these simple rules will help everyone have a great experience.
Video Judging will be used this year for this division. Video judging requires each team to submit a video based upon the guidelines found here. Be sure to read the Team Guidelines thoroughly. Feel free to review the two event partner documents too. This will give you a clear understanding of how video judging works and how your will be graded.
All teams are highly encouraged to submit a team video. Many awards including Excellence and Design require the submission of a video. Teams with superior videos will be first interviewed in their pit area and then potentially invited to face-to-face interviews. If your team advances to the face-to-face interviews an invitation will be placed on your pit table Wednesday morning. Be sure to bring your engineering notebook in case you are selected for a face-to-face interview.
Submit video by filling out this VEX IQ Middle School Video Judging Google Form.
Video Judging will also be used for those teams participating in the STEM Research Project.
Submit STEM Research videos by filling out this VEX IQ Middle School STEM Research Project Judging Google Form.
Submission Deadline: March 28th, 2017
All team members, coaches and any adult assiting a team are required to fill out and submit a Heartland Regional Waiver form. Be sure to read the waiver form over thougoughly. To help event registration to move along quickly we ask each person to have filled out this waiver prior to arriving. Thank you in advance for helping with this. Here is a direct link to the Waiver form. (Please note: This waiver is mandatory, but is the only one required.)
Teams on the wait list that have qualified for the U.S. Open will be given preference over non-qualified teams.
Qualified teams on the wait list will be invited in the order they have added their teams to the wait list, not the date of their qualification.
Teams on the wait list from schools/organizations that have reached the individual school/organization team maximum will be invited last off the wait list.
