On January 1, 2024, the three-day 2023-2024 season VEX Robotics Asia Open International Signature Event concluded successfully at the Taihu International Expo Center in Wuxi. With the theme “Leading Technology, Infinite Innovation,” the competition covered an area of nearly 30,000 square meters and attracted close to a thousand teams from various countries and regions, with over 4,000 participants including competitors and coaches. The competition included four categories: VEX GO, VEX IQ, VEX VRC, and VEX U, spanning from kindergarten to university levels. Winning teams in the competition had the opportunity to qualify for the World Championship, competing on the global stage.
Although the young participants in the VEX IQ&V5 competition are not very old, they are exceptionally serious in debugging their robots. They meticulously inspect each part, ensuring everything is in optimal condition. The disciplined attitude of these young participants is evident—they don’t easily give up and constantly strive for excellence. Every movement is carefully designed, and every gaze reveals concentration and determination for the competition. They deeply understand that in robot competitions, every detail can potentially impact the results, so they don’t overlook anything. Throughout the competition, they showcase their abilities in teamwork, problem-solving, and technical innovation.
The 2023-2024 season VEX Robotics Asia Open International Signature Event, as the first-ever international signature event held in China, provides a crucial platform for the exchange and collaboration of robotics technology both domestically and internationally. Beyond that, it holds the potential to propel the rapid development of the robotics industry in China, inspiring more young individuals to engage in the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) field and pursue innovation and development in robotics technology.
