RoboDesigners at the VEX World Championship 2012

[The Norton's were part of our early TechBrick teams. When they moved to Virginia they continued with US FIRST and now VEX]

On April 18-21, RoboDesigners, a homeschool robotics club from Roanoke, Virginia, competed at the 2012 VEX Robotics World Championship. Held in Anaheim, California, the event hosted 600 VEX teams ranging in age from middle school to college. RoboDesigners placed 21st out of 99 teams in the Engineering division with a 7-3 record, playing against two of the three teams that won the World Champion title.

In competitive robotics, team members learn valuable life skills including time management, communication, and teamwork. Team members also learn the design process, programming, and problem solving hands-on, preparing them for engineering careers. The lessons students experientially learn in robotics stay with them throughout their lives, giving them an advantage in the workforce of tomorrow

Community service is a priority for RoboDesigners. Members lead an annual FIRST LEGO League Coaches’ Workshop, volunteer at robotics tournaments, and have hosted STEM classes. For three years, they shared robotics at a career expo in Lynchburg with thousands of middle and high school students attending.

After moving to southwest Virginia, Patrick and Cari Norton founded RoboDesigners in 2007. The team went on to win awards in FIRST LEGO League for the next four years, and eventually joined VEX as team members entered high school. They have performed well over the past five years, earning 18 awards and attending World Competitions twice. Visit RoboDesigners.com for more information about the team.
