We hope you will join us this year as we expand to serve the largest number of student competitors at the first-ever Live Remote VEX Robotics World Championship presented by Northrop Grumman Foundation, held May 17-29, 2021.

Judges are critical to the scholastic sport of competitive robotics, and we realize the commitment it takes to volunteer as a judge. This year, it will take more dedicated volunteers than ever to make our judging program a success as we have expanded the number of divisions and programs for students.

Please consider volunteering as a remote judge in April and/or May (see below dates) for Live Remote VEX Worlds.

ALL SHIFTS ARE *US CENTRAL TIME ZONE*! Judging will be conducted in 3-hour shifts.

Remote judges will receive online training and volunteer recognition. Most judging will take place before the remote competition portion of VEX Worlds, so you will not miss out on any of the action! You will be able to watch Remote Skills and Live Remote Tournament matches via live stream.

We cannot serve our VEX Worlds community of participants without your support. We hope you will join us as a remote judge this year and encourage others within your program to do so as well.

Mission Statement

The Robotics Education &Competition Foundation’s mission is to increase student interest and involvement in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) by engaging students in hands-on, affordable, and sustainable robotics engineering programs. We see a future where all students design and innovate as part of a team, experience failure, persevere, and embrace STEM. These lifelong learners emerge confident in their ability to make the world a better place.

Description

The REC Foundation serves over 20,100 student-led teams from elementary school through college in over 50 countries. Each year the REC Foundation works in close partnership with VEX Robotics to unveil new engineering game challenges for the VEX IQ Challenge and the VEX Robotics Competition. Led by their teachers and mentors, students form teams to design, build, and program robots for competition. Creating a workforce prepared to solve our future problems depends on our ability to harness students’ natural curiosity, engage them in meaningful learning opportunities, incite their passion, and expand their interest in a variety of subjects. The VEX competition experience provides just that type of environment, ensuring we have lifelong learners, excited to contribute to their future and ours.
