Next Level is played on a 4’x8’ 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 two additional challenges; The Robot Skills Challenge where one robot takes the field to score as many points as possible under driver control; The Programming Skills Challenge where one robot scores as many points as possible autonomously, without any driver inputs.
The object of the game is to attain the highest score by Stacking Hubs in the scoring zones and knocking off the bonus hubs and hanging Robots on the pole.
The VEX IQ Challenge, presented by the Robotics Education & Competition Foundation, is a brand new STEM program for elementary and middle school students.
In addition to building robots, the VEX IQ Challenge will encourage students to actively learn about science, technology, engineering and mathematics with a STEM themed research project that consists of a written or media presentation.
The VEX IQ Challenge game for the 2018-2019 season is VEX IQ Challenge Next Level, and was revealed at the 2018 VEX Robotics Competition World Championship.
