We want to share an exciting new offering for VEX Robotics Competition teams that is starting to ship this week. Teams have given lots of feedback that they expect more value for their registration fee. Teams have also expressed that they would rather spend their time and energy building robots then making team numbers and flags out of paper and straws. With that in mind, we are happy to announce we’ve created a Team Registration Welcome Kit that will be shipped to all teams once their registration fees are paid. A couple VEX supporters and partners have even donated items to include for all teams. This kit will include all of the following:
· 4 Official VEX Team ID Number Plates for robots
· 4 competition flags (2 blue, 2 red)
· 2 Elevation game scoring objects (3” cubes)
· 1 Mini VEX tape measure
· 1 HEXBUG, with fundraising support information
· 1 Issue of Robot Magazine with a special subscription offer for official VEX Robotics Teams
· 1 Trial Robot Boot Camp CD from Intelitek
· Information on VEX Classroom Lab Kit and Curriculum http://www.vexrobotics.com/images/vex-elevation/vexele_welcomekit425x283.jpg
We hope teams like the new Team Registration Welcome Kit and find the items useful. Thank you to all the teams, students and mentors who gave us so much great feedback on ways we can enhance the VEX Robotics Competition experience. Information on registering teams, the Team Registration Welcome kit and the Elevation game animations can be found at www.robotevents.com.
We wish you all the best of luck in the upcoming season and at your local events. Have a great time celebrating all your hard work and innovation. Now put down the paper, markers and straws and get back to building those amazing robots!
This is the kind of information that Parents will want to see… (Personally, I am just too geeky to care! IT’S A ROBOT!!! ) It is nice to hand out materials at the Open Houses and other Public Events to gather interest, from Parents as well as Business (i.e. Sponsors).
Hundreds of Team Registration Welcome Kits have shipped out this week, with a couple hundred more due to go out in the next week.
Remember, these get shipped to teams that have completed and paid their team registration fees (the process needs to be completed for us to send out the Welcome kits since the kit includes the VEX Team ID Number plates with their confirmed/official VEX Team ID #).
Hundreds of teams should have those kits in their hands this week and next week. As more teams sign up and get their registration fees paid, the additional kits will ship out every few days from here on.
