If you’re as excited about competitive robotics as we are then you’ll definitely want to tune-in to a special program about the Vex Robotics 2016 World Championship airing tonight on ESPN2 at 6:00pm Pacific Time (9:00pm Eastern). It will be a great showcase of what our world championship teams go through; it will also be a fascinating glimpse into the exciting world of robotics competition for a new generation. The one-hour special will feature team interviews, game play announcing, matches, finals, and much more!

ESPN's decision to do this special, along with the recently added "Youth Robotics" content category added to the ESPN website, is a testament to the growing impact that competition robotics is having on our world.

We are all very excited to be a part of such an incredible movement and hope you will watch the special and maybe be inspired to get in on all the fun.
