Vista School has joined the VEX Robotics Competition! This exciting program extends beyond the classroom to an after school course that is open to 7th-12th grade students who are interested in coding, engineering, robotics, and having fun and friendly competition.

OUR TEAMS

Vista has nine VEX Robotics Competition teams for the 2019-2020 school year made up of our students, along with students from other middle schools and high schools. This year, four teams qualified for state, and three qualified for worlds in Louisville, Kentucky.

WHY VEX?

VEX is the largest robotics program for middle and high school teams with over 1,000 teams in over 45 countries. VEX is a STEM focused program that offers students opportunities to work as a team to solve problems and become critical thinkers. Although VEX is a popular program in many areas, southern Utah is not one of them. Our team will have to travel to central and northern Utah to compete against other schools. Vista Robotics would like to see VEX become available to all students in southern Utah.

VEX

VEX Robotics Competition (VRC) is a high level STEM program that offers students a competitive challenge where students design, build, and program a robot to accomplish different tasks. This year the students have to score points by scoring blocks in the corners of the field along with lifting blocks into scoring towers. This is an offensive and defensive game. The game is played on a 12′ x 12′ field and lasts only 2 minutes, which includes a 15 second autonomous control period and a 1 minute 45 second driver control period.

BUDGET

This mission of the Vista Robotics program is not only to provide opportunities for Vista students, but to promote VEX Robotics in southern Utah. For Vista Robotics to reach more students, we need help from generous individuals and businesses like yours! An average team would spend $3000 to get running.

WHY INVEST?

Every donation to the Vista Robotics program provides opportunities for students that will have an impact for the rest of their lives. These students may become the engineers and scientists of the future. Your sponsorship would help provide more opportunities to students for years to come.
