Scholarship of Discovery
Every year, the ONU Robotics Team participates in the VEX U competition. The VEX U college and university competition has more than 300 teams competing annually. Based on the VEX Robotics Competition, VEX U teams are allowed more customization and greater flexibility than other grade levels while providing the effective costs and real-world limitations of a restricted development environment. The competition changes every school year (also referred as season) to provide new challenges for the teams. In the 2021-2022 season, the name of the competition is Tipping Point. Tipping Point is played on a 12’x12’ square field. Two Alliances – one (1) “red” and one (1) “blue” – composed of two Teams each, compete in matches consisting of a fifteen-second Autonomous Period, followed by a Driver Controlled Period of one minute and forty-five seconds. The object of the game is to attain a higher score than the opposing Alliance by Scoring Rings, moving Mobile Goals to Alliance Zones, and by Elevating on Platforms at the end of a Match. The project for the ONU Robotics Team will be to build the robots and participate in the regional qualifiers of the VEX U competition, which is held in the Spring of 2022.
