On November 21st, both Lemon Bots subteams went to the Palo Verde High Magnet School VEX State Qualification Tournament in Tucson, Arizona. 127A won the award of Tournament Champion, as well as being the Robot Skills and Programming Skills champions with 30 and 45 points, respectively. This tournament champion win came after a loss and a tie in the Finals, and then two consecutive wins to turn around the finals.
Thanks to all our wonderful volunteers and sponsors, Campo Verde’s November 7th tournament was a huge success. It ended on time and was a great way to start the season. The hard work of the whole team was influential to the event. We will be glad to consider running another tournament next year.
If you are interested in volunteering in our tournament, we still need your help! Sign up now.
The Campo Verde Lemon Bots are proud to announce our first ever hosted tournament! The event will occur at our own high school on November 7th. Space is limited to 24 teams, so any local teams who want to sign up will have to do so quickly. More information can be found here.
Update: Registration space has filled up. Thank you to everyone who registered. We’re looking forward to a great event!
The new game for the 2015-2016 season of VEX Robotics is Nothing But Net, a game played on the same 12 foot by 12 foot field involving two primary methods of scoring: elevating partner robots at the end of the round and shooting for high goals. An additional stipulation is a set of rules regarding expansion from the initial 18 inch cube, forcing teams to shoot rather than dumping game objects into the goals. It should be an interesting year with all the design challenges of a multi-faceted robot.
On June 3rd, members of the Lemon Bots visited the Mesquite Elementary Library to demonstrate our robots and promote STEM to young minds in our community. The participating children were fascinated by a realistic representation of robotics rather than the caricatured humanoids that are often seen instead.
