Robot-bearing students from Norwalk High School’s VEX Robotics Competition (VRC) team N.E.R.D. Nation Team 3264F, secured their spot as the Programming Skills State Champions at The Ohio State High School Championship in Marion, Ohio this past weekend. The students competed with and against the top 30 teams from across the state of Ohio. The action-packed day required high school students to execute VEX Toss Up, a game that is played on a 12’x12’ square field. Two alliances – one “red” and one “blue” – composed of two teams each, compete in matches consisting of a fifteen-second autonomous period followed by one-minute forty-five seconds of driver-controlled play. The object of the game is to attain a higher score than the opposing alliance by scoring your colored BuckyBalls and large beach balls into the middle zone and goal zone, by stashing your colored BuckyBalls and large beach balls into the goals, and by hanging or hanging with a ball, at various heights, off your colored bar at the end of the match. As Programming Skills State Champions, the team has qualified for the chance to compete in the VEX Robotics Competition World Championship in April against top teams from over 20 countries worldwide.
