The West Michigan Aviation Academy competitive robotics team participates in the VEX Robotics Competition (VRC) program. Our competition team is structured like a typical Varsity Sport with the season including the Fall and Winter Athletics seasons.
The Basics of VEX Robotics Competition (VRC)
Each VRC Season has a new game. In the 2023-2024 VRC game, Over Under, teams attempt to attain a higher score than the opposing Alliance by Scoring Triballs in Goals, and by Elevating at the end of the Match.
VRC is a student centered program where participants develop engineering skills and compete in a sports type setting.
BUILD and PROGRAM
Students use VEX parts and components to build their competition robots. The VEX platform allows teams to use C++ based programming to code their robot’s autonomous and driver modes for the competition.
