Today, Wilson Elementary hosted the VEX IQ Challenge – 2017 Rookie Scrimmage for GCCS Elementary Robotics Teams from across the district. In VEX competitions, presented by the Robotics Education & Competition Foundations, teams of students are tasked with designing and building a robot to play against other teams. Classroom STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Manufacturing) concepts are put to the test on the playing field as students learn lifelong skills in teamwork, leadership, communications, and more. This scrimmage event allowed teams to meet each other, learn about scoring and see on a smaller scale the opportunities that lie ahead.
