"The Robotics Education & Competition (REC) Foundation hosted the VEX Robotics Virtual World Celebration and the first-ever Fantasy Robotics Tournament on Saturday, April 25 to honor its large global community of students, coaches and volunteers. 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."

Firestone's Team 7316X 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 7316X placed 23rd in the Science Division.  

Team 7316X double-qualified for the World competition at the 2020 VEX Robotics State of Ohio Championship by finishing in the semi-finals and winning the prestigious Design Award.
