Description

During the 2008-2009 school year, the Utah State University (USU) VEX Robotics team competed for the first time in the VEX Robotics World Championship. VEX annually hosts this championship to identify and award the best middle school, high school, and college robotics teams. A major goal of the USU VEX Robotics Team, through a partnership with the Rocky Mountain NASA Space Grant Consortium (RMNSPC) is to promote middle and high school students in Utah and the Rocky Mountain Region to develop an interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) through encouraging and assisting students and schools through competitive robotics. This paper discusses the goals and results of the efforts of the USU VEX Robotics Team over the past four years.
