Vex Robotics Essay Entry Hello judges, my name is Joshua Austria of the Grace Brethren Jr./Sr. High 6986 C Vex robotics team. Vex Robotics is an organization that I am very thankful for. Without it my school might not have a robotics team at all! But this is not the reason I went to our school robotics team. In fact, I was skeptical to going to the robotics club at our school in the 2012-2013 school year. However, it became an area to build creative ideas with Vex parts and test them out. I think this helps the rest of the team, along with me, to express creativity into building a robot. Also Vex robotics helped me learn more about Physics and get a chance to consistently point out levers and gear ratios in the robot. Without Robotics, I might not have known about physics until this year (8th grade) and I would never have had any experience with simple machines such as levers, wheel and axles, and gear-ratios efficiently. Vex robotics has greatly helped with this learning. In a nutshell, Vex Robotics has deepened my understanding of science, technology, and engineering all in building the robot. Next year, t might want to learn about Vex programming to use Algebra in Robotics next year. Thank you Vex robotics for making robotics a part of me as I now might want to be an engineer when I grow up. Again, my name is Joshua Austria of team 6986 C and I am proud to be part of the Vex Robotics Organization. Due: January 14, 2014 12:00 PM
