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.
