Game Animation sponsored by the RECF Foundation

Create an animated video or simulation that shows and explains a VEX IQ, VRC or VEX U Challenge game. This is your chance to get creative, invent a game, and demonstrate the game being played in a virtual environment. Construct a “real”  game that is affordable, easily constructed by volunteers, obeys the laws of physics, has understandable rules, and is interesting for participants to play and audiences to watch.

  • VEX IQ teams should create a VEX IQ game
  • VRC teams should create a VRC game
  • VEX U teams should create a VEX U game






Two teams will compete against each other for one minute in this STAR WARS themed game.  They will have a tablet that will vibrate every few seconds and a robotics related question will pop up on their screen.  If they get the question correct they may continue the game.  If they get the question incorrect they will be frozen for five seconds.  In those five seconds the player may not move their robot.  Moving the robot is a violation to the games rules and will get you immediately disqualified. After one minute is finished the team with the most balls in their...

VEX IQ robotics simulation


This project was created to simulate the VEX IQ robotics competition. In the simulation, people get to drive and learn about the basics of the competition. Although I have enjoyed competing in the VEX IQ robotics competition, there is a significant cost to participating, so I created a simulation to introduce the competition to people, and help them decide if they wanted to make that commitment.  After noticing this I wanted to do something about it, so I created VEX IQ Robotics Simulation that would be free and open the door to more people.

Capsulated, the animation by team 999A


We, team 999A, proudly made a game animation called Capsulated. During this trying time, this activity kept our team connected. We hand drew every single frame of the animation and had so much fun as a team making it. Thank you for providing us this excellent opportunity to expand our horizons and explore new things. As an all-girls team, we want to inspire other girls to take part in STEM.

Team Name: Team 999A Rising Phoenix

Thank you for this wonderful Online Challenge!

Our game is called Sky High which we built in Minecraft as a way of bringing our idea to life.

ℵ₀ is the first set of infinities, it marks the end of the countable infinity. This means 21 years into the uncountable infinity our game will be played. Technically in the video we should be saying Aleph-Null 21, but mistakes are mistakes.

Stack Attack


The object of Stack Attack is to score as many points for your team while de-scoring your opponent's points. This is done by stacking cones - yellow or pink - on the alliance and neutral goals. Each cone is worth 1 point to the alliance that corresponds with the color of the goal, or, to the alliance that parks on the neutral goal. There are also flags, which function like the towers from Tower Takeover,  doubling the points of the cones that correspond with the color of the flag. The yellow cones and elevated alliance goals are from In The Zone, and the pink cones are completely...

Boxing The Victory - An REC Game Animation


"Boxing the Victory" is played on a 12 ft by 12 ft field by two alliances, one red and one blue, made of two teams each. The object of the game is to score the most points by placing caps on poles to create a square ("box") and then placing a pyramid within the square. A cap on a pole is worth one point for the alliance whose color is face up. You also own that pole. When you own four directly adjacent poles that form a small square, you own that "box." Pyramids placed  inside of an owned square are worth two points. When you own...

Soccer, but with a twist (on a 12 foot by 12 foot field)

There will be two goals, one on which you have scored and the other you have to defend. Instead of having an open field, there will be obstacles. The obstacles will be scattered around the field, to provide a strategy. There will be one neutral ball in the middle and it will be identified by a yellow colour. There will be five balls of your team colour in your net and five balls in the opposite net of the opposing team’s colour. Having your colour balls in your net doesn’t earn you any...
