General Info

Purdue SIGBots is excited to host the Purdue SIGBots Fall Qualifying Tournament! We will be hosting the competition at the Purdue Stewart Center. This will be the second VRC tournament for the SIGBots. We have a long history of the most competitive VexU competitions in the world and are working to bring that to VRC. The Stewart Center is near the entrance to campus, and only a short walk from free parking garages. We hope this will be a great venue for our future events.

Purdue's VexU Team, ACM SIGBots, will be in attendance and welcomes all teams who are coming to have fun and compete. They will also be ready to answer any technical questions teams may have with VEX hardware and/or PROS.

Whether you are a new team or veteran team, we welcome you to join us! 

Thank you to all teams in attendance for helping to support the Purdue ACM SIGBots.

Judging Format

Judging Format

This event will feature a hybrid judging model, with Digital Notebook Submissions and Standard, In-Person pit interviews of teams.

Notebook Submission

Notebooks will need to be submitted digitally through The deadline to submit a notebook is by the end of the day Wednesday, November 22nd (11:59pm). This is the day before Thanksgiving, but will give us time to adequately read each team's work, and not have the deadline during the Thanksgiving weekend.

Team Interviews

Each team will have an in-person interview. This format will be announced at the event, but will likely follow a format similar to the state championship. Some teams may be called to secondary interviews with judges.
