Practicing with 2 robots at the World Championships

I would like to get an official ruling as to if the following will be legal or not. I have a team of 4 6th grade students, with 2 being our teamwork/driver skills challenge drivers. We will be attending the world championships and it is very important that I have all 4 members fully engaged. I would like to have the team prepare a second robot which will be used only as a platform to test our programming skills code. Once we are satisfied we have a code we like, it will be loaded into the brain of the competition robot which these 2 students will use in the programming challenge. The test robot will not be used in any skills challenges or teamwork challenge, but only for practice and testing.

Yes, this is a legal practice.
