Mundelein High School will host the VEX Robotics Competition in Illinois on Saturday, Oct. 26, from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the high school. This free event is open to the public.
During the competition, robots will go against other robots, placing cubes in goals and towers to score points for their alliance while descoring the opposing alliance. Currently, 32 robotics teams from 11 schools have signed up to participate in this event.
“Please encourage anyone you know to attend this free event,” said Manny Aldana, Robotics Club advisor.
According to VEX, their kits inspire students to become the problem solving heroes of tomorrow. Educators can bring VEX EDR into the classroom with their custom-made curriculum or use it as a standalone teaching tool in after-school robotics clubs. The VEX EDR system harnesses the excitement of building robots to immerse learners in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) concepts.
