By winning the award, the Fountain Hills High and Sahaurita/Walden Grove High School VEX teams qualified to compete in the 2012 VEX Robotics World Championship on April 18 - 21 in Anaheim, CA. The VEX Robotics Competition is now the largest middle school and high school robotics competition program in the world, now with almost 5,000 teams worldwide, in 23 different countries. The Fountain Hills and Sahaurita/Walden Grove high-school teams will be joining almost 600 other top teams from those countries in Anaheim to see who the 2012 VEX Robotics World Champions will be.

"Microchip is proud to sponsor VEX Robotics, a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) program," said Steve Sanghi, president and CEO of Microchip. "VEX Robotics provides students from middle-school to college an opportunity that not only increases their abilities in technical areas, such as programming and engineering, but also in real-life workforce skills such as working on a team, problem solving, and project management. The VEX platform also offers curriculum that enables students to use engineering skills in the classroom."

Microchip Technology is the Official Sponsor of the Fountain Hills and Southern Arizona VEX Robotics Competitions. Microchip's PIC18F8520 8-bit microcontroller is featured in VEX's autonomous and dual-control starter bundles, while Microchip's C Compiler is offered as a programming option. Microchip's sponsorship of VEX in Arizona will increase the number of tournaments held in 2013 from two to four events. Sites are being finalized and will be announced in the coming months.
