VRC Promote Award Online Video Challenge
The Promote Award is presented to a VEX Robotics Competition (VRC) or VEX U team that has created and submitted an outstanding promotional video. The goal of this video is to help the team introduce itself in the community, to help recruit new students and mentors, and to gain support for the team. This video may be about the team, the program, the competition, the design and build process, the robot itself, or any theme the team believes can help promote its VEX Robotics program in their community.
Using our own original music and video editing skills, we filmed a video, featuring our Sammy whose name is Scott, for a showcase put on by the Home Educators Resource Center (HERC) in Bakersfield. Though the showcase has not yet taken place as of this submission, we plan to display our robot (Fred) and his capabilities, as well as show this video in the hopes of both gaining intrerest for VEX and STEM. We are all seniors, and as we are an independent team, we have no source of new members as a public school would. In the future, we hope to move our team into the wider homeschool...
Semi new team here. Last year was our first year and the robots didn't arrive until two weeks before the first contest. So we made it to the contest and our middle school team made it to the quarter-finals with a Clawbot.
We had no knowledge of coding at this point and relied on the kindness of other teams. We had fun and it was educational.
This year we have learned a lot more about coding using Chromebooks and the VeX VR program, using the online tutorials. Then we switched to the V5 Coding. We hooked up the Chromebooks to the robots...
We are an all-girls middle school leveled VRC team that aims to spread the excitement of STEM to girls around the Bay Area! COVID19 may have brought us apart physically but through Zoom, we are still able to work as a team and have fun. Now more than ever, there is a need for STEM in our society. And while following COVID guidelines and keeping six feet apart, we are building a stronger tie with robotics, and one another. This video shows us working online and appreciating everything VEX has brought us.
Follow the journey of a group of students as they band together to complete tasks and solve robotic problems. Learning in a small school with old tools and equipment forces this team to think creatively. After discovering a recurring issue with their robot, they return to the drawing board to identify the problem and attempt to solve it. With each other’s help, creativity, and support, the rag-tag team completes the challenge!
We are HyperDrive Robotics. In our video, we take a look at how our team got to where it is today, and how the VEX Robotics experience has given us opportunities that we couldn't have had elsewhere.
We hope you enjoy watching our video!
We are the Sandpiper Hexperts, 2657A, a new VRC team comprised of a diverse group of five students with different interests, experience and skill levels. We have incorporated the theme of Harry Potter into all of our online challenges in keeping with our team name. In our Promote Video submission, we reflect on what comprises a growth mindset - mentorship, competition, creativity, logical thinking and discipline – which we believe are essential to a successful team. We hope that you enjoy our video, "Robotics Cultivates an Exemplary Team!"
This is a quick peek into what we do for robotics as the Proto-Knights of James B. Castle High School in Kaneohe, Hawai’i. The VEX team is our newest addition to our STEM Club and it is really captivating to see the robots that have been built from just parts and ideas work and complete the given tasks. To see your own time and effort have a physical product like this is an experience that we believe every student should have because it lets them see the bigger picture that there will always be times when it feels like nothing is working, but with some collaborative...
Want to take those important steps towards your future STEM career? Join VEX Robotics.
Over the past few years of being in VEX Robotics, we have gathered memories and learned important lessons. Using videos from years past, this video was created in quarantine by three of our team members. We hope to inspire people to join VEX by showing how the STEM skills, and the life skills, that you learn in robotics are invaluable and will not cease to be influential in the way you view problem-solving and the world as a whole.
Our Promote video highlights the VRC competition from our perspective—as an all-girls team. STEM-oriented careers and fields are largely male-dominated, and we seek to change that by creating an environment that is friendly for young women at our school. By using the valuable opportunities that VRC and VEX provide us, we seek to bring change to the biases and stereotypes in society.
We are a girl-powered team from İstanbul, Turkey. For most of us it is our first year in VRC. In our promote video we wanted to show that our team spirit and our memories will live from generation to generation. The making process of this video was very entertaining as much as it was hard for us to meet in a pandemic. Hope you like it!
This is team 96671X's entry for the VRC Promote challenge in the 2020/2021 season. Limited by circumstances of 2020, much of the footage was shot earlier in the year during late-season Tower Takeover. Pandemic or not, however, here's our answer to the question: why should you do robotics?
We are 10565B (Pink Menace), a passionate team of three seniors and a junior from southwest Ohio. All of us have been in VEX for at least three years now, but for our first year participating in the Promote Award Online Video Challenge, we decided to demonstrate, through day-to-day clips of us working on the bot, the basics of how a VEX Robotics team functions, and hopefully illuminate what VEX is all about. Each of us have a section of the video dedicated to our own specialized skill on the team,...
VEX Robotics has been such a fun program for us. That is why we want to share our experience with others who have a similar passion and want to try out robotics. Using a combination of animation and video footage from our VEX involvement, we made this short video introducing the VEX Robotics program as a whole. Hopefully, this can help inspire students of all ages to try out not only robotics but also other STEM activities.
VEX Robotics develops a love for robotics, helps you to look for more opportunities, and what STEM education brings. Increses teamwork and leadership. Emphatizes in girl powered. Inspire, motivates, and prepare for the future. VEX Robotics is everything for designinig, building, programming, strategies, and awards. Experience the engineering design process, creating brainstorming, constructing the robot, trying the robot, competing, getting better, and aknowledge the errors. Our mentor is with us in all of the process and competitions. He supports, advice, and support us! The awards make...
This Promo was created by me a student of Northbrook Middle School. In my promo I advisertise 2 of 3( because of time) things that make the challenge like the competetion and the coding. I also mention dificulty and teamwork. I would include more but I didn't have enough video representation/ Clips to represent because I did all of this from home, because of safety.
Our team decide to speak in our familiar language "Cantonese" and English. We are hoping that everyone will understand the message that we bring in the video.
The most interesting part in our video is using a function in Apple device called Memoji to represent our members face. Since the COVID-19, we cannot go to school and take video together. Therefore, we use Memoji to create our face and take a group photo together. Finally, it makes our thumbnail more interesting. This is a new try for us.
Hope you enjoy our video...
