General Info

The VEX IQ Challenge Tournament at the Culpeper Technology Education Center will be a 32 team tournament for middle and elementary school teams. Teams should expect to have about 6 qualifcation matches and 2-3 opportunities per robot skills challenge. The event is in Culpeper's new CTEC building. There is limited seating for spectators. The competition will take place in the Hub which opens to a long and wide hallway that will have pit tables. Skills challenge fields will be in the makerspace classroom.  We will not be webcasting the event.
