VEX Robotics  

The robot for this competition is a table top sized robot that must have a starting dimension no larger than 18 x 18 x 18 inches. Typically each game is played in an alliance with one other robot and each round is 2 minutes long, the first 15 seconds is autonomous, which means the robot tries to score based on programming alone the remaining 1 minute and 45 seconds is driver controlled.

FIRST Robotics Competition  

(For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology)

This competition robot is a much larger robot that must be built within a six week time frame. Commencing upon the release of the game on the first Saturday in January and typically stopping work on the robot on the Tuesday following Family day in February. The team must design, build and program their robot within the given time frame. During a competition robots will play with 2 other alliance members working together to score the most points.
