VEXMEN Team 91C Cyclops qualified for the VEX World Championship tournament by winning the Excellence Award at the Eastern Pennsylvania State Tournament over the weekend.
Over 70 VEX robotics teams competed on March 4, 2018, at Norristown Area High School in the High School Division Eastern PA State tournament, which, due to inclement weather, was postponed by a day from the originally scheduled March 3 competition date. During the skills competition teams competed in the 2017-2018 VEX Robotics challenge In the Zone, which tests the ability of a team’s (and strategic alliance partners) robot to build stacks of traffic pylon-like cones and place them in various scoring zones on a 12′ x 12′ playing field.
Team 91C earned the tournament Excellence Award based on evaluation in multiple categories: tournament ranking, programming skills, and performance in all other award categories. The Excellence Award is the highest award presented in VEX Robotics Competitions.
