North East Qualifier
The competition organised by Vex is called Nothing But Net, it uses the steel, claw style robots, to play a motor skills game that consists of using the robot to score differently shaped balls and coloured objects into nets of varying heights and difficulty levels, the combination of each being worth a different value.
During qualification rounds the teams placing first and second are the ones that get to advance through to the next round. The qualifying teams from the North East were teams Malware and Tanfield, both teams coming from Tanfield School in County Durham.
This event was organised by Vex was made in association with Gateshead College, Nissan and Go Ahead Training, together we will nurture the engineers of tomorrow by bridging the gap between schools, colleges and industry.
