PikeView Middle School Robotics Team has received an invitation to compete in the VIQC IQ Challenge WV State Championship. A big thank you to teacher, Heather Shrewsbury, for coordinating and coaching the team: Matthew Weiss, Landon Palmer, Benjamin Williams, Landon Lester, Levi Maddox, and Parker Shrewsbury.
The competition will be held remotely remotely April 16 and 17. VEX IQ Challenge Rise Above is played on a 6’ x 8’ rectangular field configured as seen above. Two robots compete in the Teamwork Challenge as an alliance in 60 second long teamwork matches, working collaboratively to score points. Teams also compete in the Robot Skills Challenge where one robot takes the field 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. The object of the game is to attain the highest score by Scoring and Stacking Risers in Goals, Completing Rows, and Completing Stacks.
