If you haven't checked out our latest newsletter, check it out here.
It's good to make sure you're subscribed to our newsletter if you haven't received something from us yet this week - we've now also updated our system so that you can customise what you do and don't get news about!
Here's a brief summary of the newsletter if you just want the highlights reel.
Scrimmages this Sat 17th Oct
We are starting off with a bang with three events taking place this Saturday across Auckland, Whanganui and Christchurch.
Level 1 means no audience limits, however you must still sign in on arrival (for contact tracing) and COVID-19 QR codes will also be available at the school. Check the newsletter for specific information about each scrimmage!
October is GirlPowered month (and spot today as #AdaLovelaceDay too!). There are two GirlPowered workshops coming up soon, one in Palmerston North by the team at St. Peters College, and the other up here in partnership with The University of Auckland Faculty of Engineering.
The Auckland GirlPowered event is FREE and open to the public!
It will be a day with different female engineers sharing their journey through STEM and a hands-on robotics workshop. This event is for Yr 7-9 girls and we encourage parents, guardians or a sibling to come along and get involved too, to find out how much fun robotics is and also meet lots of amazing young women in tech who will be more than happy to talk about their experiences with engineering.
Check out the Facebook Event for more info and RSVP on our site. Please get in touch if you have any other questions.
VEX IQ National Championships
If you haven't already, save the date! The IQ Nationals are taking place at the Palmerston North Conference and Convention Centre on 12-13th December.
Early check in will be available on Friday 11th December, and there will be Saturday morning check in available too for teams travelling in.
Watch this space as we will release more information soon about volunteering, registering for Nationals, pricing and other key information.
VEX Robotics Competition (VRC) Nationals
We are so excited to be returning to The Vodafone Events Centre on 19th - 21st February 2021. As one of our largest flagship events of the year, it's important to us as have a space large enough to cater to that, and are thrilled to be back.
