Galen VEX - Engaging our Community.
Galen VEX started in October 2016 as a group of 5 interested regional Students. We now have 30 students in our program, and have represented Australia at the VEX Worlds in 2018 and 2019. Through our passion for VEX we have encourage, mentored and inspired other schools/teams to join the program. We now have 16 local teams, and that is expanding at a rapid rate, with more schools looking to join the 2020-2021 season.
Throughout our journey we have continued to work with our community, engaging the young and the old, through workshops, fun community events, teacher workshops, holiday programs. We have also made visits to retirement homes, bringing great big smiles and plenty of laughter into thier lives.
Wangaratta is a small regional community in north east Victoria, Australia. We have gained notoriety in our community through our engagement and success and have become the "go to" people for VEX and STEM activities. The Lead Scientist of Victoria, Dr Amanda Caples, comminssioned a Case study to highlight our success to other regions.
We love VEX and sharing our passion for it. We love engaging with the community and volunteering. We won the Community Award at the 2019 VEX Nationals in recognition of all the work we have done in the community, locally and nationally.
