VEX IQ Pitching In
(Game Video)​​

VEX IQ Challenge Pitching In is played on a 6’ x 8’ rectangular field configured as seen above. Two robots compete in the Teamwork Challenge as an alliance in 60-​second long teamwork matches, working collaboratively to score points. Teams also compete in the Robot Skills Challenge where one robot takes the field to score as many points as possible. These matches consist of Driving Skills Matches, which will be entirely driver controlled, and Programming Skills Matches, which will be autonomous with limited human interaction.

Thank you for visiting the OCRC Webpage. The OCRC is a program of the Curriculum, Instruction and Academic 
Enrichment Unit and the Office of Career Education within the Educational Services Division of the
