Testing the Robot Drive Train


The 90Xcutioner team is testing the drive train of the robot for the first time at Marsh Creek Sixth Grade Center in Downingtown Pennsylvania on January 4th, 2017. The 90Xcutioner team is part of Brandywine Robotics Vexmen. The team is comprised of five sixth grade students Steven, Kamal (driver), Ethan (programmer), Toby, and Velavan.The robot was not working correctly and the main programmer was making sure the driver was using the correct controls. This picture shows the whole team trying to make the robot work correctly.

This photograph is of our team - Brampton Robotics/ Team 1104S. This photo was taken at our coach's house during a build session. Our robot was experiencing some issues with our claw, so we used collaboration to get the job done. We learned that collaborating not only finishes the job faster but it's also fun when you're working with a team!

Representation of STEM


5150H is a unique team with great ideas and collaboration between members. In the image, the team is having a discussion about improving our drivetrain and troubleshooting one of the motors which temporarily stopped working. This particular photo was chosen because it portrays how the whole team comes together to utilise an engineering process and finds a solution to our problems. As shown in the image, David Duback, former builder and designer of 5150H is suggesting that we should extend the length of the drivetrain to prevent it from tipping at the front. According to his idea...

Korea International School VEX robotics club


The KIS VEX ROBOTICS club leaders devote their time into planning an efficient and intriguing session, while also promoting teamwork.
