The Vex Challenge IQ is a competition in which a team of primary school students build and program a Vex robot, and pit it against robots built by student teams from different primary schools with in a given time limit.
Additionally there are challenges where they will have to co-operate to collect enough points to qualify for further rounds.
All challenges take place in an arena with various obstacles and tasks to overcome. The programming competition will require students to program their robot to carry out these challenges with zero user interaction. Additionally there is a user interaction challenge where students will control their robot with a controller.
Judges will also pick a best design winner for the school who has designed the most practical and aesthetically pleasing robot.
