2014 International VEX Summer Games

Inspiring students, one robot at a time.

VEX Summer Games in Honolulu, Hawaii!

May 7, 2014

Team Tip
Optimum performance during matches can be impacted by the small things. Being able to reach your highest score in matches can be related to one bolt, one nut, or one screw. In order to ensure nothing is overlooked, create a personalized physical PIT CHECKLIST for your robot in between each match.

Summer Tip
Consider hosting a summer workshop or camp for a week. These activities build the expertise of your team, encourage the growth of your program, and can be tools to raise funds on a local level to support your VEX program.
