Robotic Team Showcases Skills in VEX U Competition
January 14, 2014
On Friday, January 10, the Vaughn College robotics club showed their expertise at the VEX U Toss Up competition at Quinsigamond Community College in Worcester, MA. The team won first place in the main field competition and second place in the finals. This is the second of four preliminary competitions that Vaughn plans to participate in leading up to the Vex Robotics World Championship in April.
In the VEX U competition, college students had to conquer the same game, entitled Toss Up. The teams built two different sized innovative robots that worked together to score the most points possible in qualification matches, elimination matches and skills challenges. Through their participation in VEX U, students apply the theoretical STEM knowledge they learn in their college courses, while acquiring many of the academic and life skills necessary to excel in the workforce.
