Purdue robotics team grabs win

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Purdue’s robotics team, SIGBots, placed first in the Skills competition at the 2022 VEX Robotics World Championship earlier this month.

The championship, which took place is Dallas, Texas, consisted of the highest-ranked robotics teams in the world coming together to compete. This year’s game was “Tipping Point,” which focused on placing the most amount of rings on mobile goals.

At the university level, the tournament was separated into two separate divisions, according to Dominic Holifield, a SIGBots team member and now-Junior in mechanical engineering at Purdue.

“From those divisions,” Holifield said, “the winners played each other in finals. And on top of the head-on-head competition that takes place in those divisions, there’s also a skills category which is individual teams scoring as much points as they can.
