2 teams from the Comox Valley are off to the VEX Robotics World Championships.

Alex Bowman with the Byte Me Robotics team from Cumberland says VEX allows students to build a robot and compete in different challenges against other teams across the province.

“We had to get through the qualifying round, then we went to the quarter-finals and semi-finals”, he says. He notes only 8 teams out of 120 from BC make it to Worlds.

Bowman says Byte Me Robotics has started a GO FUND ME page to help with costs associated with the competition. “[The competition] helps build teamwork and engineering skills”, Bowman says.
