I am Aeden from team 6007 and I am working on a project with Cameron from team 62. We’ve been a part of VEX for a long time and want to give back to the community that built us.
We are both several years retired from VEX now, but we remember just how motivated and knowledgeable so many kids doing VEX are, and how frustrating it was to not be taken seriously by companies when looking for an internship. We are hoping to give one talented vex competitor the chance to work on a serious engineering project with people who respect the knowledge that you have.
We have a vision for the future of robotics that is cheaper and far more widespread. We are starting by reinventing a hardware product at the center of every robot arm in the world.
Right now, we need help building the testing setup that tests this part to and past its limits, recording when, and how it fails. You will have complete responsibility for every aspect of this system, including designing the mechanical/electrical parts, as well as writing code to log the data that is recorded.
We are looking for someone obsessed with robots, with crazy work ethic, and extremely high standards for their own work. Experience with CAD (Solidworks Preferred), and general programming knowledge are a must. This is exactly why we came to the VEX community, where we know we can find people just like this.
If this sounds interesting, reply below and I will DM you the system requirements. If you impress us with your work on this first project, we will likely be very interested in continuing to work with you in the future.
Note: we are currently working in Berkeley/LA, but remote work is no problem.
Aeden and Cameron
