Robomatter VEX IQ Virtual Challenge

The VEX IQ Virtual Challenge is an exciting project where you will program a virtual VEX IQ robot to play an online version of VEX Highrise! Participating students will use real robot programming to guide a virtual robot through this year’s VEX IQ Virtual Highrise Challenge, competing against other teams to score the most autonomous points possible. Students that participate in this challenge receive free software, training, and access to robot virtual worlds. Click this link to go to the Robotics Academy website. This is a challenge produced and hosted by Robomatter, CMU’s Robotics Academy, and the University of Pittsburgh’s Learning Research and Development Center, not the Robotics Education & Competition Foundation.
