Competition Preparation

This event is sure to be fast-paced and exciting. All teams should come prepared for competition. Here are a few steps that every team should take to ensure that they are prepared.

1. Review the rules and run through the inspection checklist about a week before the competition so that there is ample time to make last-minute adjustments if any are needed. http://www.roboticseducation.org/competition-teams/vex-iq-challenge/

2. Check the official VEX IQ forums for rule updates and changes.  http://www.vexiqforum.com/

3. Pack for the event the day before the day of departure. Be sure to include:

  • Robot license plates
  • Spare parts
  • Batteries and chargers
  • Programming cable
  • Power strip
  • Laptop computer
  • Engineering notebook
  • STEM presentation materials, including visual aids
  • Banners and other decorations for your team pit

4. Be sure to read Tips for Teams to Prepare VEX IQ Challenge Events.

5. Review the descriptions and criteria for the awards that will be handed out at this tournament.

6. Prep for your team interview with the judges, and practice your STEM presentation.

7. Understand how the game will be played, and that in teamwork matches you're working WITH the other team, not against them! VEX IQ participants are more than welcome to watch the referee training videos before they attend a tournament. 

8. Read through the Robot troubleshooting guide, and make sure all team members are ready to respond to a problem.

9. Ensure that you have the latest version of firmware.
