Exciting Surprises at Vietnam VEX Robotics National Championship 2024

Nội dung bài viết

    On January 20 & 21, the 6 teams from PennSchool participated together in the Vietnam VEX Robotics National Championship 2024 with high determination and fierce winning spirit.

    Before the National Round, #HomeOfTheEagles had spent 2 whole months building, programming, training ideal “robot warriors,” and testing their strength on the real stage through friendly tournaments.

    Dashing to the Championship with the best confidence, 6 teams in PennSchool uniform participated to compete in Groups of Primary School and High School, battling against 250 competing teams from 31 provinces and cities all over Vietnam.

    After almost 2,500 intense matches, the Vietnam VEX Robotics National Championship 2024 came to a glorious end. #HomeOfTheEagles excellently placed their names on the list of teams with impressive achievements.

    In the High School Group, PENN MI GOI team has won the Fulbright Young Innovator Award, brought home an attractive scholarship prize worth 187 million VND for each team member, and opened up an opportunity to enroll at Fulbright University Vietnam.

    The Fulbright Young Innovator Award was awarded based on team performance throughout the competition. PennSchool team successfully impressed the judges from Fulbright University Vietnam by meeting all criteria: Innovation (uniqueness of design, breakthrough problem-solving); Excellent programming (outstanding programming skills, showcasing a high level of algorithm complexity); Team collaboration (effective interaction, cooperation, and communication throughout the competition); Advanced technical skills (designing powerful robots, structurally flexible, and high-performance); Patience and Determination (adapting to challenges and difficulties)

    In addition, PENN MI GOI continued to succeed in the Design Award category. PENN MI GOI was honored for the team’s excellent performance in Technical Design and Interview Process, along with Efficient Time Management.

    In the main competition, PENN MI GOI also achieved high ranks in other categories, such as the Top 5 Robot Skills Challenge and the Top 8 Teamwork Challenge.

    PENN MI Y team showed advanced robotic control skills, followed by fellow PennSchool team in the Robot Skills Challenge, which achieved the 6th rank and outperformed in the Teamwork Challenge, which placed at the 4th rank.

    In Junior groups, the PennSchool teams successfully left impressive marks with intriguing matches.

    In the Secondary School Group, PENN ROOKIES team surpassed 93 teams, which ranked 36th out of 129 in the Robot Skills Challenge, and 26th out of 50 in the Teamwork Challenge.

    Our young warriors from the PENN CHEESE team made an impression in the Primary School Group, achieving a 25th rank out of 31 in the Teamwork Challenge and a 43rd rank out of 57 in the Robot Skills Challenge. Whereas the PENN BANANA team achieved a 22nd rank out of 33 in the Teamwork Challenge and a 46th rank out of 57 in the Robot Skills Challenge.

    The outstanding achievement of the #HomeOfTheEagles robotic team in the Vietnam VEX Robotics National Championship 2024 is a proud-worthy result for their tireless training and preparation in the past 2 months. In keeping with the legacy of previous PennSchool students, the robotics team in the academic year 2023 – 2024 continued to prove their excellent inventive talent, promising to conquer more robotics championships in the future.

    Vietnam VEX Robotics National Championship is part of “A Year Of Robotics 2024” program, held with the cooperation of STEAM for Vietnam, The American Center (the U.S. Embassy & Consulate in Vietnam), and Hanoi University of Science and Technology.

    The competition provides a playground for passionate “robotic engineers,” enabling them to improve their skills in programming and assembling VEX Robotics systems.

    Through participation in competitions, PennSchool students greatly improve both their skills for critical thinking and their ability to implement innovative ideas, which represent the qualities and abilities of an empowered global citizen, similar to the core values that PennSchool promotes and seeks to foster.
