Vexmen Gateway World Championships Reveal

The time is approaching fast, and it’s time to formally reveal the Vexmen robots attending World Championships. The Vexmen are for the first time sending two robots to the high school division, and this year we are sending five robots to the middle school division.

Come see our pits this year and talk with a roboteer to get a Vexmen bracelet. This should help you remember our teams in choosing an alliance partner! There are 5 Vexmen teams in the Middle School area pits as team 80 letters and 2 in the High School area as team 81 letters.
