General Info

***Update (6/10/21): the Elementary School and Middle School Events are now merged into this event.***

Showcase events provide an opportunity for teams to play in-person tournaments with multiple organizations. Teams will compete with their robots and present their efforts to in-person judges so that they might experience an end-of-season event to showcase their accomplishments.

Each individual team may select only 1 Showcase event to attend.

Registration is now open without organizational limits. The same team may place itself on multiple waitlists, but if that team gets invited to multiple events, that team may only choose one of those events to attend even if there is open capacity at a second event.

Dublin Robotics Club invites your teams to participate in VEX IQ Showcase Event to be held at Bay Area California on June 19th just after VEX Worlds has completed.

The exciting thing about this event is that the Elementary School Excellence Award and Middle School Excellence Award qualifies for VEX Worlds 2022 in Dallas, Texas.

Not only that, there are multiple awards including Teamwork Champions, Teamwork second place and Teamwork third place. Judged awards are Think Award, Amaze Award, Create Award, Innovate Award, Design Award and Judges Award.  

In addition, we are offering 2 home pod mini to teams from Out of State and 2 from out of Country and 2 from in State. This is to encourage the teams that are traveling long distances to participate in our event.

Every participant will receive a custom made participation certificate.

Teams and families can make a vacation out of this trip as the event is held at the heart of Bay Area with an easy relaxing trips to SFO, Golden Gate, Napa tours, Mystery spot, Santa Cruz, Monterey, and Yosemite etc. It is the right time to enjoy the beautiful California summer.

We strive to conduct the event in a safe manner - everyone will wear mask and face shields.

Looking forward to seeing your teams at Pacific Open Championship in California.
