It's Gonna Be HUGE!

Ian Clavio

As a team leader of 687D, I organized a team meeting in our senior mentor’s house during Winter Break. The team brainstormed ideas, made some sketches, and re-design our robot so that we will be prepared for our next competition. As what our team motto says,

“It’s Gonna Be HUGE!”

Engineers in the Making

hew_zi_heng

Robotics isn't just about programming, controlling and building; one of the less known aspects of VEX Robotics is the Engineering Notebook. It records down what your team does and most importantly what you have learnt from the whole VEX experience.

When you become an enginner 10 or 20 years down the road, you're not going to remember how to stack 7 skyrises within 30 seconds, or build a functioning catapult that can launch balls. But you will definitely still need the skills and knowledge of keeping a Enginnering Notebook.

First Competition Nerves

KThomas523

This was our first competition of the year and you can see on my face that I was thinking about a lot. I remember thinking "Where do I go right now?" and "I need to keep my robot safe". In this picture I am clinging tightly to our robot because I was worried about dropping it  or about having someone bump into it. I couldn't figure out where I was supposed to be so I was also looking around for my coach.
