New Online Challenge

A new online challenge has been announced on the Online Challenge website with some interesting details that I think you all should take a look at…

We are excited to bring a new challenge this year, the Community Award Online Challenge sponsored by Google. This challenge is available to all VRC and VEX U teams and not only do the ten winners automatically qualify for VEX Robotics World Championship 2020 with this challenge, the registration fee is paid.

All Online Challenges will be officially announced on September 2nd, 2019 and will open for submissions on September 9th, 2019.


What are online challenges for? What do we do in them?

The REC Foundation’s Online Challenges provide a unique opportunity for students from around the world to participate in VEX Robotics Competition, VEX U and VEX IQ Challenge-based engineering competitions. Students can show off their work, win prizes, and even win a chance to compete at the VEX Robotics World Championship. The REC Foundation organizes Online Challenges in a variety of subjects that may change from year-to-year.

Every year, the Robotics Education & Competition Foundation release a handful of challenges, such as the Website Design Challenge, Photography Challenge, Promote Video Challenge, etc… You follow the criteria and submit your work for the chance to win some money and a spot at the World Championship. It’s a great opportunity for all students, and I recommend participating.
