General Info

This workshop is to provide new robotics teams in NH an opportunity to learn more about the VEX kit they were granted from the REC Foundation's NH Robotic Starter grant.   There will be experienced mentors on hand to share tips and tricks as well as how to mentor a VEX team.  The event will conclude with a scrimmage between all the new teams.  There will mentors from both VEX IQ and VEX EDR, so new elementary, middle school and high school teams are encouraged to attend.
