General Info

Mt. Pleasant Robotics is excited to welcome teams to The Hero Clash!   

Click the link below for the Most Up to Date Event Details: 


While this event is a great "starter-tournament" opportunity for brand new teams, registration is open to VEX IQ teams of any experience level.  

At this event, all participating teams will be required to compete using a HERO BOT. MINIMAL modifications will be allowed. Click the link below to review allowable modifications to this season's Hero Bot, "Byte." 


There will officially be NO JUDGED AWARDS at this event.  However, teams will still have an opportunity to participate in the initial interview process!  The goal will be to allow brand new teams the opportunity to learn the interview process and to also give experienced teams an opportunity to polish their interview skills as they enter a new season.  

Teams and Coaches are encouraged to dress in their best SUPERHERO attire on event day!  Costumes can represent your favorite, famous superheroes OR your team can show your creativity with your own original superheroes! Team and individual PRIZES are up for grabs, so pull out those capes and show us what you've got!   

Additional information regarding directions, campus maps, times, and food information will be emailed to registered teams closer to the tournament date.  In the meantime, if you have any questions, please email [email protected]. (Update: See The Hero Bot Resources link above)
