Palos Verdes Estates, CA – December 2, 2017 – More than 300 middle school and high school VEX Challenge students and mentors from around Southern California will unite at the Palos Verdes High School VEX Tournament, co-hosted by The Palos Verdes Institute of Technology (PVIT) and Rolling Robots of Rolling Hills Estates, CA, on Saturday, December 2, 2017 for the VEX Challenge In the Zone tournament. The action-packed event will feature more than 30 teams who will collaborate with other schools in a series of back-to-back robot challenges. Participants strive to succeed by strategically executing the VEX game In the Zone, with robots they designed, built, and programmed completely by the students using VEX Robotics hardware.

The program encourages students to explore engineering as a way to strengthen problem-solving skills and to have fun in a student-centered, collaborative environment. Over 150 students on fifteen different engineering competition teams, made possible by the Peninsula Education Foundation and the Palos Verdes High School Boosters Club, are supported by over thirty professional engineering mentors from the community.
