50566D Passages

- Each team was asked to write a short passage for the website talking about what their team role is and what they hope to accomplish this year. 

My name is Dhruv and I am a co-captain of the team 50566D also known as the Lunatechs.  I am mainly into programming although I am also a bit interested in building. I have been in the CMS Vex program since 7th grade, with no prior robotics experience before that.  I have high hopes this year, and I think our team has the potential to make it to worlds this year.

Hi, friends, my name is Saarth, I hope to accomplish the goal of the year which to make it to the game with a good and powerful robot and win the game. I am a programmer.

My name is David, and I am a part of the 50566D Vex Team. On the team, I am the 3d Modeler / Graphic Designer and part of the building team. In addition, I am the assistant builder. I want to contribute to our team and make sure that the 50566D team does the best we can.

Hello, my name is Dhanvi. I am interested in building and programming.  I have been doing Vex for 2 years now and I feel good about our team this year.  I am really excited to be starting Vex again this year and I hope we all have a great year.

Hi, my name is Aditya and I a co-captain for 50566D and the website manager for CMS Vex. I am the head builder for my team and a mentor for younger and new members of VEX. I think that we have a lot of potential of making it to VEX worlds this year.

David designing the tire for his team's online challenge. 

For the Make It Real challenge, we had to design a special part that could be used with our robot. We designed a tire that has treads for better traction and can also be used as a flywheel or a suction-like grabber. For the challenge, we had to write an essay talking about our tire and how it can be used in the game. Here is a link to the essay: LINK

Online Challenge: Make It Real AutoCAD
Online Challenge: Dell Website Challenge 

The very website that you are using right now was designed for the Dell Sponsored website challenge, where teams had to design a website talking about their teams, outreach, and other activities.
