Metal experts Macy Industries has partnered with MCC Robotics the past two years in an effort to grow the VEX program in NH. This year the VEX IQ Challenge was introduced to NH allowing more competitions to inspire young minds and expand opportunities for students to explore STEM careers. “Macy Industries is passionate about supporting programs like VEX and they are helping MCC to market this opportunity to students and employers around the state”, says Larochelle.
Six VEX Robotics Competition teams and nine VEX IQ Challenge teams earned invitations to the VEX World Championship. Macy Industries is generously sponsoring three of these teams, two from St Joe’s Junior High School and one from St Anthony elementary school.
