The 2017 - 2018 Palmetto State VEX Robotics Competition Middle School Championship will be held at Dutch Fork Middle School, 1528 Old Tamah Road, Irmo, SC 29093. Middle and high school students have the same game and rules. The most general and basic rules for VEX EDR are as follows, but each year may have exceptions.

  Each robot is paired up with one other, and they compete against two other robots. Team colors are red and blue.
 No robot may exceed the dimensions of an 18" cube until the match has begun.
 At the start of the match is a 15-second autonomous period, where all four robots navigate the field entirely by themselves.
  After the autonomous period is the driver control period, which is 1:45 seconds of manual control of the robot through a handheld controller.

 VEX Competitions bring STEAM skills to life by tasking teams of students with designing and building a robot to play against other teams in a game-based engineering challenge. Classroom STEAM concepts are put to the test as students learn lifelong skills in teamwork, leadership, communications, creativity and more.
