THREE of our four VEX IQ robotics teams have earned a spot at the CREATE US Open Robotics event (Formerly referred to as Nationals) in Council Bluffs, Iowa on April 4th and 5th of this year.  This is a huge accomplishment and we are honored to be invited.  These 4th and 5th graders  are doing robotics for the very first time.  They have worked very hard since September.  Please help us fund this trip.  This money will help to pay airfare, hotel, food, transportation, as well as a trip to the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha, Nebraska.  The children will have the opportunity to compete with teams from all over the United States as well as three teams from China!  It is one of the World’s largest robotics tournaments.  The Robot Weirdos have won awards for: Robot Design, STEM Research Project, Robot Skills, and an Excellence Award.  The Psycho Robots have won an award for Robot Skills.  Most recently The Thunderbolts have won an award for Robot Skills currently holding the highest score in the state.  The robot skills award involves scoring the most points combined between the team driving the robot for one minute scoring points, and the robot driving as programmed for one minute scoring points.  To win this award, the team members must have a strong understanding of computer programming, and strong driving skills.
