VEX Robots Autonomously Driving In Traffic, Then Parking When Lighting Conditions Change

February 21, 2018

Students at Theodore Roosevelt High School in Kent, Ohio built and programmed VEX robots to autonomously drive and park! Using infrared, ultrasonic, and photo sensors these robots must stay on a winding black striped track, avoid collisions, and then go to park when the lights go off!

Egg Drop Design Winners

November 16, 2017

Students at the egg drop competition

On the first day of school, Academy students were broken up into teams based on their home school to give Level 1 and Level 2 students a chance to work together.  The students were given 10 sheets of paper and a meter of tape and were challenged to make a device that would protect an egg from breaking when dropped from the top of the stadium. They were given 20 minutes to design and build the device.  The lightest weight device that kept the egg from breaking or cracking was declared the winner. Congratulations to the Tallmadge team, which won this year’s challenge.
