LPEF & Robotics Partnership
The goal of the partnership between the LPEF and the Robotics Club is to grow the robotics program at Lake Park High School.
The Robotics group designs, builds and competes in local robotic competitions using only VEX robotics components.
Classroom STEM concepts are put to the test as students learn lifelong skills in teamwork, leadership, communication, computer programing and more.
Tournaments are held year-round at the regional, state, and national levels and culminate at the VEX Robotics World Championship each April!View the LPEF & Robotics Partnership brochure here.Help us Grow!

Thank you to all the teams, staff, and volunteers that made it a wonderful event!Thank you to our 2021 Tournament sponsors:Presenting Sponsor:Field Sponsors:Overview of VEX Robotics
The VEX Robotics Competition, operated by the Robotics Education and Competition Foundation, is a program that inspires thousands of students worldwide to pursue STEM-related education and career paths. While there are many quality robotics competitions worldwide, the VEX Robotics user community has overwhelmingly demanded new challenges that are easy and economical to host and implement.
The VEX EDR System helps takes the inspiration from the competition to the next level. The system is used as a classroom robotics platform designed to nurture creative advancement in robotics and knowledge of STEM education. VEX provides teachers and students with an affordable, robust, and state-of-the-art robotics system suitable for classroom use and the playing field. VEX’s innovative use of pre-manufactured and easily formed structural metal, intuitive mechanical parts combined with a powerful range of user-programmable microprocessors for control, leads to infinite design possibilities2021-2022 VEX Competition - Tipping Point- view it being played here.
VEX Robotics Competition Change Up is played on a 12’x12’ square field configured as seen above. Two (2) Alliances – one (1) “red” and one (1) “blue” – composed of two (2) Teams each, compete in matches consisting of a fifteen (15) second Autonomous Period, followed by a one minute and forty-five second (1:45) Driver Controlled Period.
The object of the game is to attain a higher score than the opposing Alliance by Scoring Rings, moving Mobile Goals to Alliance Zones, and by Elevating on Platforms at the end of the a Match.
There are seventy-two (72) Rings and seven (7) Mobile Goals on a VRC Tipping Point Field. Each Alliance has two (2) Alliance Mobile Goals, with the remaining three (3) Goals being neutral. Each Alliance also has a Platform located in their Home Zone.
Rings scored on an Alliance Mobile Goal will count for the respective Alliance, regardless of where it ends the Match. However, Rings scored on Neutral Goals will only count for an Alliance if the Mobile Goal ends the Match in their Home Zone!
As the Match draws to a close, Robots will start heading back towards their Alliance Platforms. Alliances can earn additional points for each Robot and Mobile Goal that ends the Match Elevated on a Balanced Alliance Platform.
The Alliance that scores more points in the Autonomous period is awarded with six (6) bonus points, added to the final score at the end of the match. Each Alliance also has the opportunity to earn an additional Win Point by scoring at least one Ring on each of their Alliance’s Mobile Goals, and “Clearing” their Autonomous Win Point Line. This Bonus can be earned by both Alliances, regardless of who wins the Autonomous Bonus
