Minneola Charter Mechanical Mustangs Vex Robotics Club

Our Vex Club has been running for 2 years. You can get into this program by being a student at Minneola Charter school. Toward the begining of the year they do sign ups. When you sign up you must write about why you want in robotics. Mrs. Borysiewicz runs robotics. It is held after school on Tuesday's and Thursdays after school from 3:30 to 5:00 pm. This works because our elementary and middle school both start at 8 am and end at 3 pm unlike most middle schools in the area. The first things we do in the year is talk about what the notebook is, what the engineering process is, and what the game is for this year. We also get every person to draw one or more designs for a robot so we have lots of ideas to go off of. This year we have 4 teams competing in the elementary competitions and 1 middle school team. Our school has participated in different types of robotics but this is our second year of Vex. A few members of our robotics club have expierence with Vex however most are new to Vex IQ.
