600 Primary School Students to Compete in Semi-Finals of Dell VEX Robotics today in Limerick. From 10am- 3pm.
The Dell VEX Robotics Challenge, was introduced in Ireland in 2012, and calls on students at primary and secondary school level to work in teams to design, build and program a robot. Preparation with students has been taking place since September with scrimmages taking place in schools during November to prepare students for the competition phases.
This week the final round of the semi-final stages of the primary school competition will take place at the Dell EMC Limerick Campus. At the semi-final events, primary schools will compete against each other, present their projects to the judges and compete in a teamwork challenge with the finalists announced at the end of the day.
Todays semi-finals will be run by Dell in collaboration with their partner institute, Mary Immaculate College, who came on board as a partner with Dell in 2017 to generate further awareness and participation from Limerick schools.
