The VEX Robotics World Championship to take place in Louisville, Kentucky on April 19-25, 2017 featuring 1,400 teams and a new, improved schedule. Read the full announcement at: http://www.roboticseducation.org/news
I attended last year and loved it, really looking forward to it again.
This is a 2 champs that I can really get behind!
Kudos to Vex for making this change.
This sets a logical precedent for other large-scale robotics competition models to follow in the future. Splitting up age groups just makes sense.
I can understand the splitting of age groups, but a logistical challenge if you do VEX IQ, VEX and FRC.:ahh: with respect to chaperones, teachers, and hotel arrangments. This will make it even tighter to get from one event in one city to another.
