For more than 10 years, robotics has become a popular method of teaching technical skills at the middle and high school level. Commonly structured as competitions, these programs encourage the design, assembly and programming of purpose built machines to achieve a particular objective. The VEX program integrates physical concepts such as power, torque and mechanical advantage with the abstract concepts of programming to produce a tangible outcome. The high-school oriented program is based on a meccano-like system called VEX, which consists of structural components, motors, sensors and a programmable controller. Each year a challenge is issued, involving the manipulation of objects for points. Competitors have a few months to build their robots and then gather for competition.
VEX competition is an event for the STORM Robotics Club at Mother Margaret Mary High School to plan, design, and build a fully functional robot. This robot is designed to complete a task and be assembled after school hours during our weekly meetings.
|September - June with the exception of exam weeks on Thursday after school from 12:15 - 3pm||Anyone can join the club with preference given to students who have experience in VEX robotics and coding. There are 2 teams of 4-5 students. For 2022-23 school year, we have one senior team of 4 students and one junior team of 4 students. The senior team is full. We are looking for two enthusiastic students to join the junior team.|
