Robotics at Fairview!

The Vex IQ Robotics Challenge for 2020 – 2021 is out!  Take a look at the info here and the video below:

More detailed explanation of the game.


Teams of 2-4 students will be forming in September 2019, shortly after school starts.  We are open to including students outside of the Fairview student body and teams can schedule their team meetings to work around individual schedules

We plan to have a parent/student informational meeting at 7pm on Monday, Sept 9th to answer questions and figure out teams and team meeting logistics.

Please email [email protected] if you’d like more information

Cost: TBD, Scholarships available


We also plan to hope to have robot build times this summer.  Tentatively July 8th – 12th, but other times can be set up as well if there is enough interest.  Please e-mail [email protected] if you’re interested.

Cost: TBD, Scholarships available

Robot Competition Events

Fairview not only fields teams, but also hosts competition events.  These events are free for anyone to come to see and encourage your favorite Robot Team. Hope to see you there!

We’re currently recruiting all kinds of volunteers to help us run these fun and exciting events! Descriptions of official positions are listed on the Robotics Education site.

We are always looking for sponsors!  Robotics can be a bit expensive and we’re always very grateful for any help to defray our team and event costs. You can donate through our online form or download this form to send or bring in to our office.

Up to 32 teams from all over Washington State will compete in our events bringing in around 300-400 people per event. Our students have been working hard: building, testing, programming and writing about their process of creating a working, moving robot to enter the competition.
