VEX Middle School Tournament 2011

November 6th, 2011, C.O.R.E. hosted its second VEX League tournament at Waukesha West High School, this time for middle school students. About 36 teams from all around Waukesha came to compete. (For more information on this year’s game, Gateway, click here.) During the month of October, some of the teams had been coming to Waukesha South and working on their robots with the help from C.O.R.E. 2062. November 6thwas the day of judgement, to see if all their hard work had paid off. The excitement and tension in the air was as thick as pea soup. The air was filled with cries, both of glee and despair. Kids everywhere were cheering on their robots and teams, vying to be in the winning alliance. The robots used chains and pulleys and levers and pincers and more gears than one could have ever imagined. C.O.R.E. queued the teams for matches, provided food, and refereed the matches. All in all, it was a great day.
