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.
We are Rising Phoenix Team #11108B and we created Techno Shoes to with sensors built in to aid visually impaired people navigate their world with more independence.
Students researched sensors and smart technology. They then created a thesis about a sensor which would be inserted into the human body to detect viruses and medical issues . They designed the sensor and used its design and outcomes based on that research.
In this video we explore the physics behind how a trebuchet works and how you can optimize it. As well as how the trebuchet was important to history and how the principles used to build the trebuchet are still used today in our everyday life. We also build a trebuchet to test our research.
Building a Vex IQ Robotics means to us that it's fun to work with friends. It is also exciting to work with other people that you don't really work with. It can get challenging when things can go wrong. When we complete a challenging task it can be rewarding.
How Sensors are used in Amazon Fresh with Lightning Ninjas and Expert Mark Kojak
How does the whole amazon thing work? (intro question)

What different sensors are used?
Most are visual, QR scanner, cameras at gate, 3D models of...
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...
We are team 11110F and our robot for this project is the Tesla Model X. We chose this because there are many things we can go over with its autopilot mechanism. For example, how does it detect a stop sign? We did some research and the video will answer that question.
