Fall Activities

VEX Robotics Competition

The VRC game for the 2014-2015 year was Skyrise.

Peachtree Regional VEX Qualifier

The Robo Lions hosted its annual "Robots at the Ridge" VEX Qualifier, and was once again successful at being a great host for attendees. A few months prior to the event, there was concern that the Ridge would not be able to host the Robots at the Ridge, but it was fortunately dispelled.

Teams 675B, 675E, and 5601 won the competition and qualified for the championships.

Outreach

In 2015, the Robo Lions were invited to come back for STEM Day again, this time just doing an activity with third grade. The team designed a car construction based activity, and placed emphasis on unusual materials and problem solving thinking while still following the design process. The general idea behind the activity was much more simple than the previous year, which worked much better. Because the activity was simple, we kept the talking to a minimum, maximized the work time, and left 10 minutes approximately for robot demonstrations. VEX tiles were set up in the middle of the gym, then all sat around the tiles while we drove VEX robots around. Specifically, from this year, we learned that simple is good, but it helps to have a large team of people helping to get the activity prepared ahead of time. Begin preparation for STEM day at least two-three weeks in advance rather than the week of.

FIRST Robotics Competition

Game

The 2015 FRC game was Recycle Rush.

Robots

The 2015 robot was Alvin, named after the Gwinnett County Public Schools Superintendent J. Alvin Wilbanks. The Superintendent visited the club during its Sponsor Night, a rare occurrence, which inspired the students to name the robot after him.
