WVU Tech robotics club set for first competition

A team of WVU Tech students is on the road after months of spending their free time huddled around computers and workbenches, designing, programming, calibrating and testing their creation. They’re part of the brand new VEX Robotics Club at Tech, and they’re not alone. With them is Monty1 – a VEX-based robot – and on Friday, March 2, they’re putting the machine to the test at the West Virginia 2018 VEX U Regional Qualifier at Fairmont State University.

The “In the Zone” competition will pit 21 schools against one another as their robots pick up, move and stack small cones on goals during the competition. Broken up into “alliances,” the teams that earn the most points for their robotic stacking precision will win a chance to move into elimination rounds and, ultimately, to the World Championship to be hosted this April in Kentucky.
