Vexmen Win Two Design Awards At Vex Worlds
Team 80W Warpath performed extremely well in the VEX Robotics Competition Opportunity Division placing 12th out of 84 teams in the qualifying rounds and 12th in autonomous robot skills where the robots are programmed to operate with no human interaction.
Team 92P Phoenix exceeded expectations in their first year of competing in the VEX IQ Challenge by placing 47th in autonomous robot skills out of 200 teams in the middle school division.
The “Design Award” is presented to a team that demonstrates an organized and professional approach to the design process, project management, time management and team organization. The winning team will be able to describe to judges through a presentation how they created and implemented an efficient and productive design process to effectively manage their time and resources to accomplish their project goals.
Team 80M Mercury showed their skills by placing 19th out of more than 170 teams in the VRC middle school division for autonomous skills and 27th overall for driver skills.
This year’s VEX Robotics World Championship tournament was certified by Guinness as
the largest robotics tournament ever with over one-thousand teams in attendance. The Downingtown based Vexmen teams are the largest Vex Robotics club in the world as well! We compete in the Vex Robotics Competition which is largest and fastest growing robotics competition in the world with over 14,000 teams coming from 38 countries. The top robots are invited to the Vex World Championships and showcases over 1000 teams in five groups from elementary through college.
The Tuesday class will focus on build techniques and firefighting competition. This class is aimed primarily at roboteers who have completed their first season in robotics and can now appreciate the finer points of robot construction and assembly. At the end of this course, students should be able to construct a more stable and stronger robot than at the beginning of class. They will be introduced to the engineering design process and how it applies to Vex robotics (so you can have an awesome design notebook next season)
The Wednesday class is about programming techniques and will use Robot C virtual worlds. This class is aimed at roboteers who have some experience in robotics and Robot C who want to control their robot better. If you use copy and paste to program your robot, this class is for you.
