Bring Competition into the Classroom

VEX robots are extremely engaging to begin with, but when a competitive component is added to a robotics program, the results can be astounding. Students become even more motivated, creative, focused and solutions oriented. We've seen this time and time again when teachers utilize VEX's co-curricular Classroom Competition, Swept Away.

This bundle includes everything needed for a complete robotics program for 24-30 students. The included VEX EDR curriculum helps educators start teaching with VEX, from the basics of engineering, robotics and design all the way up to a semester ending classroom competition using the included game, Swept Away.

Game Information and Technical Specifications

Swept Away Manual

The VEX Classroom Competition uses the same game every year; teachers can evolve their lesson plans as their comfort level and expertise grows without worrying about adapting to a new "twist" each year. The game used is called Swept Away.

Everything about Swept Away is designed for the classroom.

  • Exciting back-and-forth play at all skill levels
  • Variety of engineering problems
  • Fun and challenging for both beginners and experts
  • Easy to learn, tough to master - accessible without being limiting

Matches are played on an 8 ft x 8 ft square field with a dividing wall down the center. One robot is placed on each side of the field with twelve 4" foam soccer balls and six foam footballs. The object of the game is simple: get as many balls onto your opponent's side of the field as possible during a 2-minute match.
