The Vexmen of Brandywine Robotics

Calling All Vexmen – Registration Now Open!!

Vexmen 2017-2018 Registration Open Now

The Vexmen will be looking for new student Roboteers for the upcoming 2017-2018 season. We are the largest Vex organization in the world and looking for some new members.

There will be two information sessions on September 5th and 6th at the Marsh Creek Sixth Grade Center cafeteria. Please choose a night that matches when you will be able to come on a regular basis. Additionally, please fill out a registration form so we can ensure our capacity.

New Member Registration Form

The Vexmen build robots and compete at the local, state, and international levels. Teams are comprised of 4-5 student roboteers along with 2-3 adult mentors. Each team builds and programs their own robot of their own design each season. We are a club but robots compete against each other. We are a parent run organization and can’t stress that enough. We can’t run without at least 2 parent mentors per 5 person teams.

Due to the Vexmen’s growth over the last few years, we will only be able to accept a limited number of new students through an online application process. We actually exceeded our 5-year growth plan in a single shot making the Vexmen the world’s largest Vex Robotics Competition organization.

A number of factors including building space, competition space, and our ability to provide a world class program requires us to limit new members in a way that helps us maintain our organization in a sustainable manner.

The most direct way that we can concentrate on serving our needs and our local Downingtown community is to give first priority to new students living within the DASD boundaries. We are unsure at this point if local demand will be too high to allow us to accept any new Vexmen from outside the DASD geographic area.

Please fill out the registration form above and our first informational meetings will be on September 5th and 6th. Please fill the registration form prior to attending even if you do not know if you want to participate yet.

6:30 – 8:30pm 9/5/17 and 9/6/17

This is the second year the Vexmen have gone to TSA conference and our first national win. Cyclops has won the TSA event in Pennsylvania for two years running. This year, team 81C Colossus also traveled to TSA nationals having come in second in the PA TSA event. The Vexmen strive to educate and enhance their STEM education from elementary through high school with direct parental involvement and guidance. Students learn engineering, programming, building skills, presentation skills, and competitive drive.
New Vex Part Ordering Process
We are now using our new online parts ordering process. This online order form does not actually order the parts but it helps assemble the needs of each teams in a consolidated manner. It is not a real order and should not be used by anyone outside of the Vexmen. (We’ve had quite a few external orders looking for out of stock Vex parts like the Turbo Gears) That’s why there is no credit card entry at check out and no SSL secure pages. The reports at the end make it an easier process for us to manage ordering for 34 teams.
