General Info

We will look forward to you attending the 6th VIQC Regional in the North East. We hope to make this bigger and better than previous ones, open to all VEX IQ Teams, both Elementery (Years 4-6) and Middle School (Years 7-9), you will need to check birthday rules too. 

We have decided to run this on a Saturday due to positive comments from team mentors last year and the increased issues of teachers being allowed out of school. Thank you to Park View School for providing the venue for free.

As it's a Saturday, there are plenty of car parking spaces. Should any teams want to bring their kit the night before, this can be arranged.

Please bring refreshments and packed lunch for the day. I will ensure we have a kettle and ample supply of tea and coffee for adults.

If you have any questions, please contact me directly.

I'm looking forward to this years Challenge :)
