hi, does anybody have any info on the
2015-2016 vex u qualifying criteria (UK)
Student of M[Eng] Robotics @ Plymouth University
It’ll probably be like last year and depend on how many teams are registered. If you let Paul McKnight know early on that you intend to compete then he’ll probably keep you updated regarding qualifying criteria.
Looking forward to the competition!
Hiya toss_bosses ! did you get to worlds this year ?
it’ll be good for more vex u teams !
had a year off from VRC but so up for VEX U !
What are your thoughts on the game?
I’ll message him when he gets back from Louisville, but i was just wondering if any sort of official guidelines had been released from RECF (i couldn’t see any)
There are more important things than terms! Like robots!
Yeah, I know… A year or two ago, about half my time at school was just doing robotics, and probably a lot more than half during the time I should’ve been revising for exams.
Unfortunately my university has a rule that I have to be in university by midnight on the Wednesday, so even though I’d be fine with taking the time off, the university probably wouldn’t. Also, they always schedule mock exams on the first Thursday and Friday back, so there doesn’t seem to be anyway round it…
]They move the worlds back by a week like it was this year or they move the worlds to sometime in July (which has a 0.00001% chance of happening, so if Karthik, John V Neun or anyone up there is reading this…:D)
*]There’s another international VEX U competition, maybe if there was a VEX U division at the Summer games or something… or…
*]I could make a robot that is controlled over the internet to move the actual VEX robots around to the field and back, which probably isn’t allowed in the rules
*I don’t know why the worlds is in April, most people are either in school or university and preparing for their end of year exams, so wouldn’t it make more sense to have the worlds in July like the Summer games were last year to make it more accessible?
You might be surprised what would happen if you asked your college/professors if you could be gone. If you show them what you are doing they might be more than willing to accommodate you. I could be totally wrong, but if you go about it the right way you might get lucky!
Hopefully the college can see the educational benefit of what you are doing…they SHOULD be happy to work with you.
