VEX WORLD CHAMPIONS
The first time ever that Australia has won the world championship for VEX Robotics Competition!
Watch the video of our team competing below!
VEX Robotics is a programme developed in the United States. It is supported by NASA, California State University, Carnegie Mellon University, MIT and the Robotics Society of Southern California.
The VEX Robotics Competition organised by the Robotics Education and Competition Foundation seeks to inspire millions of students around the world to pursue STEM education and STEM career paths. The VEX Robotics World Championship attracts thousands of young people around the world and more than 90,000 participants take part in this event annually. It is one of the most prominent events in the field of robotics and even holds the Guinness World Record for the largest robotics competition ever held.
Our students at the SRA attend a wide range of competitions organised by us. Our competition fields and large classrooms allow for a venue for these competitions to take place.

The VEX world championship brings together qualifying teams from the three VEX Robotics programs; the VEX IQ Challenge (elementary and middle school), VEX Robotics Competition (middle school and high school), and VEX U (college), for a celebration of the robotics community and to crown World Champions. The event is held in Dallas, TX in the United States.
VEX IQ NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS
Teams 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.
OXFORD COMPUTING CHALLENGE
The Oxford University Computing Challenge (OUCC) is a two-round online competition that uses students' skills further to produce programmed solutions to computational thinking problems.
INTERNATIONAL OLYMPIAD IN INFORMATICS
The IOI is one of five international science olympiads and the most prestigious computer science competition in the world for secondary school students. It bring together exceptionally talented pupils from various countries to share scientific and cultural experiences through computer science and programming challenges.
