Ocean Science Exploration

(Level 3)

Game Description

The Ocean theme challenges student built robots to assist humans in exploring the bottom of the sea.  These tasks increase the difficulty for robot design and capabilities for more experienced VEX GO students.  The theme provides many real world topics for students to discuss and explore as they build new robots for a new competition.
