The event, co-organized by San Luis Obispo High School's SLO-Botics team and Cal Poly's Society of Women Engineers, is one of a series of VEX Robotics Competitions taking place internationally throughout the year. VEX Robotics is the world's fastest growing competitive robotics program for elementary schools, middle schools, high schools and colleges around the world, with more than 7,300 teams from 26 countries that participate in more than 400 VEX Robotics Competition events worldwide. The competition season culminates each Spring, with the highly-anticipated VEX Robotics Competition World Championship event, uniting top qualifying teams from local, state and international VEX Robotics Competitions.

 "The technological economy of the future depends on equipping today's youth with the tools necessary to become tomorrow's leading innovators," said SLO-Botics coach Jan Fetcho. "This tournament provides kids with an engaging hands-on learning experience that promotes a passion for science and technology – instilling in them an appreciation for the field and an enthusiasm to pursue STEM-related education and careers."
