VEX Robotics Competition at Ambridge High PDF Print E-mail

Design. Create. Team Work. Problem Solve That is what one-hundred and twenty five middle through high school students were excited to do as they showed off their robots in a VEX Competition at Ambridge Area High School.  The competition took place on Thursday, March, 26, 2015 in the high school gym.  Schools from the local area and neighboring states registered to compete.  There were 10 high school teams present:  Ambridge HS (3), BioMed Science Academy, OH (1), Central Catholic (4), Liberty High (1), and Shaler (1). There were 15 middle school teams: Ambridge (3), Central Valley (6) and North Allegheny (6).

The High school challenge was the VEX Skyrise.  Teams had to design and build their robot to be no larger than 18” x 18” to start and then be able to remote control it for 2 mins. The object is to score points by placing the cubes and yellow skyrise sections in scoring areas.  Each team was able to play 10 matches, randomly paired alliances. The results from the competition are: Ambridge 5014H, Ambridge 5014Z, Liberty High 9502, Ambridge 5014T, Central Catholic 6995, Central Catholic 6995B, BioMed Science Academy 926, Central Catholic 6995D, Shaler 1175S, and Central Catholic 6995C.

The Middle School Challenge was the VEX Highrise. Teams had to design and build their robot to be able to move or pick up blocks and place them in scoring areas.  Extra points were scored by the teams (two randomly paired robots) that could make towers of colored-blocks within the 60 second of gameplay.  The individual teams were able to challenge others about 10 times throughout the day.  The results are:  North Allegheny 200B, North Allegheny 10673, Ambridge A, North Allegheny 10840A, Central Valley B, North Allegheny 10673B, Central Valley E, Central Valley F, Central Valley A, Ambridge B, North Allegheny 200A, North Allegheny 10840B, Ambridge C, Central Valley D, and Central Valley C.

The event was hosted by Ambridge Area High School Technology Education/TSA teachers, Mrs. Kristin Holmes, Mr. Benjamin Holmes and Mr. Jason Roos. This was the 2nd VEX event hosted at Ambridge. It is simply great to see the kids excited about robotics and helping each other along the way! Many of these teams will be competing at Seven Springs Mountain Resort April 15-18, for one last time at PA TSA (technology student association) States.  Good luck teams and hope to more teams next year for more VEX robotics fun! For more details on vex robotics please visit the Vexrobotics.com website!

Our Cadets took a total of 7 medals in the Individual events and a 2nd place award for Female (16-19 yr old) Individual event. Unfortunately we did not place in the Team events this year. However, if there had been an award for the most motivating, our Cadets would have won...hands down! It didn't matter if it was a competitor or a team mate, our Cadets were right there on the sidelines cheering, yelling, clapping, jumping, and motivating them on. It was an incredibly moving experience to see teenagers, who typically are on the more self centered side and who are competing against each other for medals, awards and scholarships, completely disregard any and all of that and cheer on and motivate each other!! It was truly amazing...an awe inspiring moment! They were rewarded with Mr. Arnold Schwarzenegger stopping by to give them some encouraging words and a photo opportunity.
