Carey Hosts VEX V5 Robotics Competition WA Finals
We recently hosted the WA Finals of the VEX V5 Robotics Competition. This event was part of the Year 9 GATE STEM program, where students choose a significant STEM Project. This year fifteen students chose the VEX Robotics Competition, and we had four teams competing in the finals.
The competition involved designing and building a robot in the VEX VRC Spin-Up Competition that could shoot discs into goals, turn rollers, and expand to cover as many field tiles as possible at the end of a match. The process involved building a physical robot and programming a controller to talk to the robot.
The day was a great success, with two of our teams being awarded tournament champions, and we also won an Excellence Award and a Judge’s Award. Well done to all the students involved! We’re excited to be taking a team to the National Championships in Sydney in December.
