The University of Southern Mississippi today announced that they will be hosting 132 robotics teams in the Mississippi VEX Robotics State Championship on March 2-3, 2018 at USM’s Payne Center. This tournament will showcase elementary, middle and high school students from across the state in an educational competitive robotics program. These competitors have been building, programming, and driving their robots at local and regional competitions throughout Mississippi to advance to this state championship, and they are ready to show off their engineering and programming knowledge. The competition also focuses on teamwork, communication, and keeping students engaged in hands-on technology challenges that build their interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Winning teams from this competition will advance to the 2018 VEX Robotics World Championship in April in Louisville, KY where more than 1,400 of the best VEX competition teams from around the world will compete.
