Another proud day at Kilruane NS!
Great news everybody….!!
Go team Kilruane NS!
VEX Robotics is an exciting and fun program where school children from 8-18 years learn about Science Technology Engineering and Maths (STEM) while having fun! They design, build, program and compete with their robot in a spectacular competition organised by Dell EMC.
In addition to STEM the students acquire other skills such as project management, presentation skills, teamwork, leadership, PR and much more.
There are two divisions of the competition currently being run in Ireland, VEX IQ and VEX EDR. VEX IQ is primary school level while VEX EDR is secondary school level. Each year there is a new challenge and students must work as a team to design, build, program and drive their Robot.
Winning the Design Award… What does it Mean?
The Design Award recipient demonstrates the ability to implement the most effective and efficient robot design process. Their Engineering Notebook and discussion with the Judges will demonstrate the team’s ability to produce a quality robot with minimal adult assistance. Only teams that submit Engineering Notebooks are eligible for the Design Award. Key criteria:
- Engineering Notebook is a clear, complete, and organised document of the robot design process.
- Team demonstrates effective management of skills, time, and material resources.
- Students understand and explain how they developed an effective game strategy and robot design.
- Students demonstrate teamwork and effective communication skills.
