On Dec. 12, middle and high school students from across Southern California descended upon the West Hills campus of Chaminade College Preparatory for the inaugural Chaminade Showdown Nothing But Net VEX Robotics Competition. Servite High School, an all-boys Catholic school in Anaheim, was among the participants.

Twenty-four school teams came together for a day of competition, where they battled against each other with robots created from VEX EDR.

The Nothing But Net VEX Robotics Competition is one in a series of tournaments supported by the REC Foundation and various national, regional and local sponsors. The competition season culminates each spring, with the top performing teams from local and state VEX Robotics competitions competing against each other at VEX Worlds, where the teams will have the opportunity to challenge their top-ranked peers from more than 30 countries around the world, including Brazil, Canada and China.  

VEX Robotics Competition Nothing But Net was developed by VEX Robotics, Inc. and the Robotics Education & Competition (REC) Foundation, leaders in educational and competitive robotics.
