The Prairie Cup VEX Robotics Competition

vex_ss_2017.jpg

Over the past several years, student robotics has become a popular method of teaching technical skills at the middle and high school level. Commonly structured as competitions, these programs encourage the design, assembly and programming of purpose built machines to achieve a particular objective. NCS has participated at sumobot competitions at Sask Polytechnic in Saskatoon and the Aerospace Museum in Calgary. We've entered robots into VEX Robotics competitions and SkillsCanada competitions. We are now proud to host the only VEX Robotics competition in Saskatchewan.


Neilburg Composite School will be hosting the The Prairie Cup VEX Robotics Competition on March 3, 2018 in the school gym. The 2018 event has been scaled back to be an in-school affair with the final match at the Student of the Month Assembly on Friday, March 9.

Registration and more information can be found at our page on RobotEvents.com.

The high-school oriented program is based on a meccano-like system called VEX, which consists of structural components, motors, sensors and a programmable controller. Each year a challenge is issued, involving the manipulation of objects for points. Competitors have a few months to build their robots and then gather for competition.
