Description: This year the TEECA East Robotics Challenge will be BASED ON THE VEX-U CHALLENGE, Turning Point! The challenge will follow VEX UNIVERSITY GAME RULES AND ROBOT MODIFICATIONS. This year’s game is Turning Point. All robots must conform to the rules governing a UNIVERSITY VEX event (VEX U). See this important VexU appendix for the game manual. Therefore, each TEECA team will compete with ONE robot no larger than 24” X 24” X 24”. For this TEECA East Robotics Challenge, you do NOT need to be an officially registered VexU team. Our challenge at Rehoboth Beach is NOT a VexU qualifying event.  However, since we will follow the official VexU rules and build a single robot that conforms to the VexU requirements, you will be able to reuse your robot for the rest of the VexU season in tournaments around the country. The TEECA competition will consist of five components: a round robin tournament based on Turning Point (see this video); a robot skills challenge; a programming skills challenge; a team interview on robot design; and a unique autonomous 60-second task announced on the day of the event. A design notebook will not be scored separately but is recommended as it will aid in the team interview.
