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.
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
