NU students compete in VEX Worlds Championship

In doing so, these 16,000 students broke the previously held GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the largest robotics competition! VEX Worlds, presented by the Robotics Education and Competition (REC) Foundation and the Northrop Grumman Foundation, is the culminating event of the season and was one incredible celebration of robotics engineering, featuring the world’s largest and fastest growing international robotics programs–the VEX IQ Challenge, the VEX Robotics Competition and VEX U.  North Union represented four of the teams that competed in three different divisions at the global event.
