More than 135 elementary and middle school VEX IQ Challenge students and mentors from around the state will unite at Mollie B Hoover Elementary on Feb. 10, for the VEX IQ Challenge Ringmaster tournament. The action-packed event will feature more than 27 teams who will collaborate with other schools in a series of back-to-back robot challenges, made possible by the following sponsors: Nucor Steel, Pace Dairy, Hoosier Heartland Bank, and Banjo. Participants succeed by strategically executing the game VEX IQ Challenge Ringmaster, with robots they designed, built, and programmed using VEX IQ.
Four local teams will compete at the event. Hoover has three teams, Hoover Bots, Hoover Tigers and Hoover Techs. Nicholson Elementary has the Techno Knights in action. 
VEX IQ Challenge Ringmaster is one in a series of events taking place throughout the year. VEX Competitions represent the world’s largest and fastest growing competitive robotics programs for elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, and colleges. There are more than 20,000 VEX Competition teams from over 45 countries that participate in over 1,500 events worldwide. The competition season culminates each spring, with the VEX Robotics World Championship, a highly-anticipated event that unites top qualifying teams from local, state, regional and international VEX IQ Challenge events who strive to secure the title of World Champions.

Question of the Week:

County Commissioner Phil Bane mentioned extending Memorial Drive from just behind the Boys & Girls Club across Sugar Creek and connecting to US 231. Would you be in favor of that project?
