Robo-Knights Journal

10/24/2021 Monday

Today, as Robo-Knights, we have come a long way in building our robots by using the robot parts we learned in the first week and following the instructions. At this stage, we realized the importance of working as a team and helping each other.

Today, as Robo-Knights, we coded the Hercule robot in the Amazon Cyber Robotic Challenge. In this virtual coding learning experience, we learn the basics of computer science while uncovering the miraculous ways goods are delivered at Amazon.

Our coding adventures will go on.

Robo-Knights Club

Grades: 5th-8th

This club is designed to promote creative thinking, social, problem solving, and computer programming skills. Not only does our robotics program help to establish STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) concepts, they also work to build on students’ team-building skills as they work to complete fun challenges. These collaborative skills are essential for student success, no matter what subject they choose to pursue in the future.

We use VeX IQ kits and C-based programming development tools to plan, build, test, and modify their own robotic creations.


  • Try-Out               – Oct. 4, 2021
  • Starting               – Oct. 11, 2021
  • Ending                – End of the School year


Times: 2:45pm-4pm Each Monday

VeX IQ Challenge


The VEX IQ Challenge, presented by the Robotics Education & Competition Foundation, provides elementary and middle school students with exciting, open-ended robotics and research project challenges that enhance their science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) skills through hands-on, student-centered learning.

The VEX IQ Challenge fosters student development of the teamwork, critical thinking, project management, and communication skills required to prepare them to become the next generation of innovators and problem solvers.

Pitching In Game


VEX IQ Challenge Pitching In is played on a 6’ x 8’ rectangular field configured as seen above. Two robots compete in the Teamwork Challenge as an alliance in 60-second long teamwork matches, working collaboratively to score points.

Teams also compete in the Robot Skills Challenge where one robot takes the field to score as many points as possible. These matches consist of Driving Skills Matches, which will be entirely driver-controlled, and Programming Skills Matches, which will be autonomous with limited human interaction.
