At the VEX IQ Nationals held in Wangaratta an exciting competition unfolded. Students started the day by submitting their engineering book for the Design award and STEM project. The judges then interviewed each team and heard all the wonderful things the students have been working on. Both sections were taken out by Team 10911
The Skills Challenge then took place with students scoring points in a 1 minute autonomous challenge and individual 1 minute driver challenge. The scores are then combined to get the overall winner.
