C.O.R.E. Vex Season Kick-Off

Tuesday, September 22nd was the first night for rookies and they’re starting off the season with Vex. For some this is their first introduction to robotics, so it is crucial that they pay attention and participate. Just ask Ryan, who joined Vex after hearing about it through the engineering academy, “Vex is a great intro to robotics. It takes complex ideas and concepts and explains them in an easy and fun way.” Right now teams are working on different aspects of designing their robots. Bjorn says that his team is “learning how to build our robot with the limited materials and resources available.” Finding and dealing with limits and restraints is a problem that even the C.O.R.E. team faces daily. When students begin the FRC challenge they will be immediately faced with size and weight restrictions on their ideas. In general, getting into teams and dealing with a robotic challenge is a great intro to C.O.R.E.
