My co-worker, Director of Product Development for VEX Robotics John V-Neun, has proposed a challenge on his blog.
John is looking for a marvelous VEX robot that is cool, fun, and either autonomous or intuitive to control. It does not have to be all VEX but the key components should be VEX. I’d also suggest making it mechanically interesting. John is a mechanical geek and I am certain he’ll award bonus points for innovative mechanisms.
The winner gets a VEX Classroom Lab Kit with a Cortex Microcontroller valued at $850 so this could be a great way for an existing VEX team to get some parts or start a second team.
