LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Sept. 5, 2014) — The 2015 VEX Robotics World Championship will be held on April 15–18, 2015 at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, the Robotics Education & Competition Foundation and the Northrop Grumman Foundation today.

This four-day annual robotics-engineering tournament usually attracts more than 800 teams and 15,000 students from more than 25 countries to celebrate their accomplishments and further inspire their interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

“The VEX Robotics World Championship has grown significantly in the past few years and we are excited to move the event to the Kentucky Exposition Center, where the larger venue and new amenities will provide an incredible world class experience to the students, teachers, mentors, and parents who join us each year,” said Jason Morrella, president, REC Foundation. “We look forward to exploring the greater Louisville area and welcoming hundreds of VEX Robotics teams in April.”
