2nd Annual City of Indianapolis VEX Robotics Championship at Bankers Life Fieldhouse

Mayor Greg Ballard invites you to the 2nd Annual City of Indianapolis VEX Robotics Championship (IndyVRC) sponsored by Roche Diagnostics on November 16 & 17, 2013 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

The IndyVRC engages 48 high schools and 40 middle schools competing in a sports-like game. Teams of students have been working alongside engineers and other industry professionals to design, build, and program a robot to compete against robots from other teams.  Teams can win awards for creating business plans, developing cohesive team “brands,” and cooperating with other teams.

The top team will qualify for the VEX Robotics World Championship and receive a very large trophy. Additionally, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology will provide four college scholarships to the members of the winning team.

On Sunday, our sponsors and community partners will host the IndyVRC STEM Community Fair. The stem fair will include interactive, hands-on, STEM based-activities that are fun for the whole family. Check them out in between matches.

Come out and support Indianapolis students while they participate in this invaluable STEM educational experience!
