Over 30,000 people including 1,600 teams from 30 nations have converged on Louisville, KY for the 11th annual VEX Robotics World Championship. The week-long celebration of STEM, diversity and robotics continues with the VEX IQ Challenge from Sunday, April 29 – Tuesday, May 1.

"While the VEX Robotics World Championship may culminate in the crowning of champions, our time here in Louisvilleis about so much more than that," said Paul Copioli, president of VEX Robotics.
