More than 2,300 teams from around the world virtually competed in the simulated Fantasy Robotics Tournament for the VEX Robotics Competition Tower Takeover and VEX IQ Challenge Squared Away seasons. Teams saw updates of the simulation results throughout the Celebration while waiting to see who would be unveiled as the world champions, while also celebrating the season’s highlights, Online Challenges winners, Inspiration All Star winners, and the 2020-21 games.

All teams that qualified for the 2020 VEX Robotics World Championship were included in the simulated Fantasy Robotics Tournament, and the winners of the tournament were announced during the VEX Robotics Virtual World Celebration.

NIHF STEM teams 60883B and 60883D participated in the virtual tournament. By using stats from teams throughout the season, the REC Foundation simulated matches to determine team placements and awards.

Team 60883D finished 7-4 in their qualifying matches, ranking them 24th in the Automation Division. Team 60883B finished a perfect 11-0 in their qualifying matches ranking them second in the Physics Division. They went on to lose in the finals of their Division Tournament.

Coach Sam Appleby stated that it was fun for all the kidsbut especially for the four seniors on Team 60883B: Xavier Remedios, Milan Radonjich, Addison Smith and Nick Hann. Their hard work throughout the school year yielded positive results at their final tournament of the year.
