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.
