VEX Robotics

VEX Robotics expands older (grades 8 through 12) students’ knowledge and experience in robotics, encouraging them to enter careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). Working in teams, VEX participants build and program robots to complete both autonomous and driver-controlled actions.

This year’s activity, In The Zone, requires that students build a robot to work collaboratively with another team to score points on the game field and keep the opposing alliance from scoring against them.

7580The Haslett Robotics Club currently sponsors five VEX teams: the VEX Dragons, the VEX Ravens, VEX Voltage, the VEX Minotaurs, and Thieves of Steel.
