VRAD has brought me and my team together by giving us a doable objective. Because there are three people on each team. Jobs can include driving, coding, and communicating with opponent teams while the two previous positions are busy during matches.
Our team had been physically separated due to quarantine. There was little to no hope that we would do a competition this year. However, VRAD changed that by offering an appropriate alternative.
After the whole lockdown situation, VRAD gave us a chance to continue working within our club in an effective and manageable manner. Having these competitions be virtual has allowed us and other teams to become part of a community situated around the country.
These global competitions will allow all participants to battle it out for the winning title and some amazing prizes!
No. You will have access to most competitions but some of our sponsored leagues will require an entrance fee and each will vary.
You can always enter a competition as a team of one, but we encourage you to enter with friends as this helps to boost a child's teamwork skills. Teamwork is a core skill for Robotics competitions.
