Are there any building instructions for the three VEX robots used in the VEX Toss up game for robot virtual world? It would be better learning if the students had a physical robot that matched the robot in the virtual world. So, any help finding the building instructions would be great. The three robots are ballerbot, intakebot, and kickerbot.

Hi clarmom,
The virtual robot designs provided in our competition worlds are meant to give the opportunity for students to practice programming different kinds of robots for the competition games, not to be realistic designs. We have only ever built these robots as virtual, not physical, models.

If your team wants to take inspiration from some of the designs, that's great (we'd love if you post some pictures of your final robot when you get it built). Be aware, though, that the physics in the virtual world do not always match the real world, so your team will probably have to do a fair bit of design iteration to get some of the designs to work. Going through this process of developing a working robot design is part of the engineering challenge offered by these competitions.

Best of luck,
