General Info

This event is sure to be a fast-paced and exciting event. 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 for adjustments. 

2. Check the official VEX IQ Q&A on RobotEvents.com for rule updates and changes.

3. Carefully read all of the information contained in the tournament posting on RobotEvents.com

4. Pack for the event the day before the day of departure. Here are a few items that you don't want to forget:
Spare parts & tools
Batteries and chargers
Programming cable
Power strip
Laptop computer
Engineering notebooks
Banners and other decorations for your team pit

5. Prep for possible team interviews with the judges. 

6. Remember that safety and good sportsmanship comes first.  We expect students to be doing the work at these VEX IQ events, and expect all adult volunteers and coaches to cooperate with these efforts.
