August 3rd-4th, 2018

This year, partnered with West Virginia University (WVU), Mountaineer Area RoboticS (MARS) co-hosted the third bi-annual West Virginia Robotics eXtreme (WVRoX) endurance event on August 3rd and 4th. Approximately 700 students, mentors, volunteers and visitors experienced intense robotics competition for 26 consecutive hours. We were fortunate to have 24 teams attend, including those from West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Maryland, Florida, Tennessee, Mississippi, Virginia, North Carolina, Wisconsin, Michigan, and China.

Following 104 qualification matches, including 5 special rules matches, all 24 teams were selected to be in the final alliances.  After surviving a series of competitive finals, the winning Alliance was Children of the Swamp 179, RoboJackets 3538, and Robotics Feiyue 9999.

The judges gave the following awards: Best Scale Robot-Children of the Swamp 179; Best Switch/Exchange Robot-Flying Platypi 2655; Best Levitate-Robotiators 888; Most Robust-RoboJackets 3538; The Phil Tucker Gracious Professionalism Award-Secret City Wildbots 4265; and the Judges Award- Sharp 3260. The Phil Tucker Mentor Award was presented to Chuck Trautwein from team GaCo 1629.

We were fortunate enough to have one of our biggest sponsors, WVU, provide three scholarships that were awarded to students from teams 2614, 179, and 686.

We look forward to hosting this event again in 2020, and we hope to see everyone there.

A huge thank you to WVU, our volunteers, mentors, teams, and everyone who attended!
