Today is the last day of the competition. It was exciting; we teamed up with many different countries. They had unique robots that scored well. It was also very fun because other teams gave treats to us and we got to play fun games. We gave out different things to other teams including Island Princess candy and stickers. Every team decorated their booths differently. For instance we decorated our booth with banners while other put balloons in their booths. The top score for the elementary division was 99 that score was better than the middle school score. The teams that scored 99 were both from China. Team Y finished in 42 out of 68 in their division. Team A finished 26 out of 68 in their division. In all there are 4 different divisions. The new VEX IQ Challenge for 2017-2018 is called Ring Master. You have to pick up rings and put them on elevated goals, some have to be put on poles sticking out of the Big Poles. There is 60 Rings in total including 15 bonus rings that must be released by 2 robots. The Kentucky Kingdom was very fun; we got to have free drinks that day and went on exciting rides. It was only open for Vex teams and some names for the rides are: Cyclos, Lightning run, Storm chaser, and breakdance. That was our trip in Kentucky Louisville.
