VEX IQ Challenge STEM Research Project Sponsored by The REC Foundation
The focus for the VEX IQ Challenge is to have students learn about the relationship among the STEM fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Each season one of the fields is featured, providing students with an opportunity to learn more about how it relates to robotics and how what they are learning in the classroom has a practical application in their lives.
This season the STEM research project will feature technology, with a specific focus on sensors. Technology is the branch of knowledge that focuses on practical purposes in life. It is the machinery and equipment that is developed using engineering. Sensors are electronic components that produce an output by detecting changes in its environment. It produces a signal notifying the user to the changes that have been detected. Gyro Ultrasonic Range Finder, Color Sensor, Touch LED, Bumper Switch are the sensors that are featured in the VEX IQ Challenge program.
This is our STEM Project about the use of sensors; specifically infrared. We first define the problem of electrical fires and then specify a solution that is available. This project is supposed to both make the viewer informed, and make them think deeply about the potential solutions to the problem. We also come up with our own potential solution to the problem that is to integrate the sensors into the circuit itself. Our solution is much more useful than the sensors that are available on the market right now.

Hello Everyone! We are team 45009B - The Beautiful Blossoms!
Many people are unable to drive for various reasons, including medical conditions and physical conditions. Many sensors are being used in cars to improve safety. Color sensors can detect the color of an object and follow colored lines. A color sensor was attached to a robot and programmed to follow red, green, and blue lines. The distance traveled by the robot was measured when the colored tapes were 0%, 25%, 50%, 75%, and 100% covered by brown pieces of paper (representing dirt and trash...
Our STEM Research project is about how airlines are using sensors to protect their passengers from getting COVID. First, we researched all of the ways that STEM industries use sensors. We thought of airlines because our sponsor is Allegiant Air, and the engineers met with us earlier this year. We focused our research and project around sensors in airlines and how airlines are keeping us safe from COVID.
First we researched three airlines, how they use sensors, and how they are protecting us from COVID. After our research, we came up with a...
We are team 177B, the Girls of STEEL. We investigated thermometers and sensors and how heatstroke affects construction workers. Construction workers should wear a sensor that will alert them if their body temperature gets too high, so that they can prevent heatstroke. We looked into different options and found that Temptraq, which was originally for infants, would be a good option for construction workers to use.
We are two elementary school Kids from Cumming GA, who went on to explore how sensors are going to change the way we drive in the future !!
Hello there we're The Plasmatic Protons, This is our entry to the 2020-2021 VEX IQ STEM Research Project. We explore the topic: Can sensors make us superhuman. This video is a collection of our ideas and findings, which finally lead to a working prototype.

Hi, we are 11110X Greenspun Robotics. For our STEM project we chose to cover sensors in cars. More specifically the 2015 Chevy Suburban vs. the sensors on our robot. All the while explaining to one of our group members how the sensors work, help cars, and comparing it to robotics!
Smart Smoke Detector
Our research topic is about smart smoke detectors. Smart smoke detectors use sensors to detect smoke.Traditional smoke detectors are not reliable enough, and not smart enough. and this can cause people to ignore them. To solve this problem, we have designed a more reliable and smarter smoke detector.
A smoke detector that detects fire nearby is great, but a smoke alarm that tells you there’s a fire no matter where you are is even better. It can send a message to your phone if it senses fire unlike the other smoke detectors that make a...
