Please congratulate our Engineering and Robotics club’s VEX Robotics Teams for their invitation to the NJ VEX ROBOTICS STATE CHAMPIONSHIP!!! They competed twice this month at South Brunswick and Millburn High School where they were great competitors in their first year competing.
Comets 88193C - Mr. Roboto earned an invitation to the state championship based on their skills score with a score of 15 points. They are 44th in the state in the skills competition. This is an amazing feat for a first year team. They were only able to practice for one week with the competition arena before competing. This is a huge achievement for Engineering and Robotics Club!

VEX Robotics Competition consists of two alliances – one “red” and one “blue” – composed of two teams each. They compete in matches consisting of a fifteen second autonomous period followed by one minute and forty-five seconds of driver-controlled play. Teams can also compete in individual Programming or Robot Skills trials. The object of the game is to attain a higher score than the opposing Alliance by High Scoring or Low Scoring Caps, Toggling Flags, and by Alliance Parking or Center Parking Robots on the Platforms.
