Year three for Mount Vernon VEX Robotics has led us to add a High School Program. This year we have added two MVHS teams #43050Y and #43050Z along with our four MVMS teams #43050A, #43050B, #43050C & #43050E. Please follow our adventures on our social media pages to keep up to date on our progress and our tournament schedule. Check out this year's game Tipping Point.
Mount Vernon Robotics is World Championship Bound!
The Mount Vernon Robotics Team is in its 3rd year of the Vex Robotics Competition program, with 2 new teams added to the High School this year. In 3 short years, the students have grown tremendously in their understanding of the engineering process, skills in strategy and ability to articulate the reason behind their choices. Every year the game play changes, so students have to design, build, code, test and continually improve a robot capable of playing all of the game elements while meeting all rules or criteria. This season the Vex Robotics game is Tipping Point played on a 12 foot by 12 foot Field. The object of the game is to attain a higher score than the opposing Alliance by Scoring Rings, moving Mobile Goals to Alliance Home Zones, and by Elevating on Platforms at the end of a Match. Alliances are made up of 2 robots on the Red Alliance versus 2 robots on the Blue Alliance.
