April is the World Championship for VEX Robotics. They will be announcing the new game for 2015-2016. You can "like" us on Facebook to get updates on the new game when it is announced.
We have a couple more scrimmages before this season is over. We have our two teams, but we would like to invite anyone else interested in being on a team next year to join us for the next 2 weeks. You will get in a team of 4 kids, build a robot, test it and compete in the scrimmage. This will give you a chance to see if it is a good fit for your child.
Scrimmage: March 31, 5-8pm at Trabuco Mesa Elementary
Practices: March 17, 19, 24, 3:30-5:00 (current team members come 2:30-4:00) at Trabuco Mesa.
There will be one more scrimmage in May in Ladera Ranch. We don't have the date yet.
Other upcoming events:
March 28, 10AM-1PM. We will have robots and a scrimmage field at the Critter Expo in RSM Central Park. You can sign up for a time to drive the team robot against kids who show up at the expo.
March 27, 5:30-8:30PM, RSM Beach Club, $35 for pizza and a Robotics Challenge Night. In small teams, you will build and modify and compete. This month the challenge is Tug of War Bots. We will learn about gear ratios, center of gravity, speed and torque. Ages 8-14.
April 24, 9AM-3PM, Imaginology at the OC Fair. We will be running competitions all day long in the main exhibition hall.
(Volunteers are needed at all these events also. We would love to have your help. Let me know when you are available.)
See you soon!
