VEX IQ Challenge, presented by the Robotics Education & Competition Foundation, provides elementary and middle school students with exciting, open-ended robotics challenges that enhance their science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) skills through hands-on, student-centered learning. And it's appeared to develop the ability of young children to make their toys and scientific abrasives, with the model of competition not only to exercise students' willpower but also to cultivate students' sense of team. A competition battlefield is a place where children can meet solid opponents and find themselves inadequate, provide a happy, and encounter problems that they will not give up. It's also can cultivate students to develop a good habit of doing everything by themselves.
2021-2022 VEX IQ Challenge – Pitching In is played on a 6' x 8' rectangular field. Two robots compete in the Teamwork Challenge as an alliance in 60-second long teamwork matches, working collaboratively to score points.
The game's object is to score as many points as possible with your alliance partner by scoring Balls in Goals, clearing Corrals, and Hanging at the end of the Match.
The competition field is set as below.
The scoring objects in VEX IQ Challenge Pitching In are 3" (7.62 cm) diameter Balls. There are a total of (22) Balls on the field. The game's object is to score as many points as possible with your alliance partner by scoring Balls in Goals, clearing corrals, and hanging at the end of the Match.
The Most Challenging Missions
1. In the Robot Skills Challenge, one Robot attempts to score as many points as possible. These matches consist of Driving Skills Matches, which will be entirely driver-controlled, and Programming Skills Matches, which will be Autonomous with limited human interaction. In the Live Remote Challenge, an Alliance of two Robots, each operating on their field under driver control, work together over a live video connection.
2. One of the problematic points is Hanging - A Robot status at the end of a Match. Each Robot that is Low Hanging is worth Six (6) points.
3. Each Robot that is High Hanging is worth ten (10) points.
4. Clear each starting corral that is cleared is worth five (5) points.
5. Each Ball that is Scored in the Low Goal is worth two (2) points. Each Ball that is Scored in the High Goal is worth six (6) points.
Upcoming Events. Everyone is welcome to watch the competitions but must follow the COVID protocols.
