Encore Online Challenge: VIQC Elementary School VEX World Robotics Championship
The REC Foundation wants to continue celebrating the achievements of the teams that qualified for the 2020 VEX Worlds Fantasy Robotics Tournament. We recognize many students were disappointed the 2020 VEX Robotics World Championship in Louisville, KY was cancelled, so we are excited to share an opportunity that may provide an additional pathway to qualify for the 2021 Remote VEX Robotics World Championship. We would love to invite back all the teams that qualified in 2020, but unfortunately that is not possible. Instead, the REC Foundation is selecting 50 VIQC Elementary School teams for an opportunity to attend the 2021 VEX Robotics World Championship through the Encore Online Challenge.
Eligible teams for the Encore Online Challenge must continue working hard this season! Eligible teams need to submit a PDF document with their team information and a (3) three-minute video sharing how they persevered after the 2020 season including their accomplishments this season. Teams should carefully review the eligibility, judging and requirements section below.
Winners for the Encore Online Challenge will be announced by Friday April 23rd.
We are PF Robotics Jr. team 1705A from Ontario, Canada. We had so much fun this year competing all around North America online. Even though we had to change the way we do robotics because of the pandemic, we know everyone did too. Three lockdowns, 2 states of emergency, and no school for months but nothing can stop us because WE LOVE ROBOTICS!
We vote to have everyone that put in an entry to this challenge win a spot at Worlds 2021, because we all deserve to go this year!
Good luck everyone,
|Siyuan (Steven) Zhu||5th||Qualified to worlds last year|
|Peiyi Wang||5th||New to 16688B and didn’t qualify to worlds last year|
