VEX Robotics goes to worlds

Story by Ta’Nya Davis

VEX Robotics has built robots all the way to the top and has been nominated for the world competition due to all of their hard work and craftsmanship. With their teamwork and dedication they have found a way to make their voices heard through their creations.

“We divide and generally do different roles, one person documents all acts we are doing and writes it down,” sophomore Arjun Verma said. “One person does all the programming for the robot and generally two or three people built the robot. People specific skills are taken and apply in certain ways so that they can do their best.”

Everyone has their own reasons for joining the club but what all members have in common is the determination to strive for higher goals.

“Long time ago back in fifth grade I joined a lego league robotics I had so much fun doing that so I wanted to do more, so in seventh grade I decided to join the Dutch Fork Middle School’s Robotics team that was our first year doing it and we made it to world,” sophomore Guytano Mancine said. “After that it was such a great experience I wanted to keep doing it. We won eighth grade year. We also went to world and I’m just in robotics and it is a great experience.”

With each person having a specific role on the team they all depend on each others skill to succeed.

“We split our roles, we are only a 3 person team. I am the one who does the programming and engineer notebook,” sophomore Jenna Hofseth said. “Which just us recording that we are going throughout the year. Guytano and third member he does the building and driving.”

For sophomore Jack Oberman his team they work pretty well together because they all have different suits and areas that they are good at and with that they coordinate together making everything turn out well in the end.

“I mainly joined because I wanted to be with my friends more and I also wanted to learn more about technology since I’m not taking a lot of technology classes,” sophomore Maha Mushtaq said.

In order to get to world competitions first you must obtain an award beforehand according to Guytano. VEX Robotics team 7432C won state; the team went on to qualify for Worlds. 7432C consist of Guytano, Jenna and sophomore Tommy Pinckney.

“We made it to the finals for state and because we made to the final for state we qualify for worlds. Our sister team 7432C actually won the entire state competition,” Arjun said.

From April 25th to May 1st, Louisville , Kentucky will be holding the Worlds Vex Robotics competition where 579 of the best robotics teams from across the world will compete at the Kentucky Exposition Center for the number one spot as the worlds best Robotics crew.

“It feels amazing and fantastic. No one expected us to get here. No one prepared funding for us to go,” Jack said. “So that fact that two teams from Dutch Fork are going is an amazing thing.”

According to Jack it was a very fortunate pairing for the teaming and also very fortunate that their robots did not screw up during the the competition so everything worked out pretty well.

“I would recommend anyone who is really interested in engineering view or programming it’s really hands on you can do a lot of things build robots for literally anything you want to,” Guytano said. “Basically anyone who just is interested.”
