Hazel Glen - VEX In The Zone Season Opener

 

This past Saturday Hazel Glen College hosted the first VEX In The Zone tournament of the year. We had 21 teams travel from across Victoria testing their robot skills on the field. Teams played a total of 8 matches leading up to the finals. At the end of qualifying only 1 team stood undefeated, St Mary’s Coptic Orthodox College. St Mary’s, team 3048A chose team 89999A and team 7479B to be their alliance partners for the finals. The three teams worked their way through the quarter and semi finals undefeated. The final match was a hard battle, but the St Mary’s alliance came through victorious winning the tournament.

 

A special mention needs to go out to the Highvale D team. This all girls team had the most exceptional engineering notebook with a very well documented design process. The girls took home the Autodesk Design award.

 

We need to send a very special thanks to all of our volunteers, without them we would have been unable to run such a great event.

 

This tournament was sponsored by Autodesk Education, Creature Technologies and DATTA Victoria.

Call For Volunteers

 

Competitive robotics tournaments rely on volunteers to make everything happen.  Volunteering at robotics competitions is a very rewarding activity where individuals become role models inspiring students. We are looking for volunteers who have an understanding and a passion for technology and a drive to work with others.

 

Volunteers will be provided with training before the events and will receive lunch at any full day event that they attend. Depending on roles and venues volunteers may need to have a working with children check.

 

Current Roles

 

Judges:

 

Judges interview robotics teams and evaluate their designs in order to determine award winners. They also have the opportunity to help students understand the engineering design process by giving them pointers and goals for the next events. The judges typically start once the tournament has got underway and help hand out trophies at the end.

 

Referees:

 

Each robotics field requires two referrers. Their job is to make sure the students follow the rules of the game and to calculate the points scored. This role is great for sports enthusiasts who like to see new sporting strategies at play.

 

Technical Inspection:

 

The Technical inspectors inspect student robots before they are allowed to compete. They make sure that the robots are safe and compliant with the rules of the game. Technical inspectors also have the ability to work with students and give advice on robot builds and programming. This role is normally finished once the tournament commences and is great for those who only can volunteer for part of the day.
