VEX Parent Update – 3 February 2010
VEX Shirts - The 2010 shirts are here and available! They are $15. Please have cash or checks payable to "Downingtown Area Robotics". We would like to have all the roboteers wear shirts to the contest at Christopher Dock. Please pay at the meeting on the 20th or on the morning of the 23rd at the school before we leave.
Demo at University of Pennsylvania - On Saturday 30 January Mike M and Foster went to the 4th Annual FIRST Lego League contest to do a VEX demo. We took Super Protbots and some sqaure bots. About 100 Lego Roboteers drove and had a great time. Thanks to Mike M for spending the day helping spread the word about VEX.
Build nightsWe are back to our regular Wednesday build nights. The robot shop is also open on the weekends from 12-5PM on both Saturday and Sunday if the VEX roboteers want to come and work.
Competition on 27 February Our next competition will be on 27 February at Westminster Maryland. We will be leaving the school at 6:30 AM. This will give us a chance to have our middle school students compete against other middle schools in the area. Let Foster know if you are interested in going. We will need drivers to get the roboteers and their robots down there!
