The Matabots

The Matabots are a collective group of motivated individuals who come from a variety of educational backgrounds all with a common interest in mind: love for science and engineering. Our main purpose is design, program, and prepare robots that will compete in the World VEX U Robotics competition. Along this path, we also encourage others within our surrounding community to pursue similar goals by helping them set up robotics clubs and teaching them the fundamentals of engineering and science. Through robotics we hope to inspire young professionals to advance in science, math, and technology.

Nothing But Net

The 2015-2016 season game, Nothing But Net, brings exciting new challenges for VEX teams throughout the world. Some of these challenges include shooting the game objects, rather than lifting to score as well as elevating your alliance partner at the end of the match for extra points. Below is a brief description of the objective of the game and how it's played:

VEX Robotics Competition Nothing But Net is played on a 12’x12’ square field configured as seen above. Two alliances – one “red” and one “blue” – composed of two teams each, compete in matches consisting of a fifteen second autonomous period followed by one minute and forty-five seconds of driver-controlled play.

The object of the game is to attain a higher score than the opposing Alliance by Scoring your Balls and Bonus Balls in your Low and High Goals, and by Elevating Robots in your Climbing Zone.
