Welcome to VEX IQ Team 80516, the Tiger Hawks! We are a Community Team from Boulder County, Colorado. We competed in the 2017/18 VEX IQ Ringmaster challenge with the goal of qualifying for and traveling to Worlds in Louisville, Kentucky for our second year.
Our members range from 4th grade to 7th grade, and have a wide range of robotics-related interests. Last year we qualified for the VEX IQ Middle School World Championships, and made it to the Technology Division finals as the 7th seed of 77 teams!
We meet at least once a week to work on our VEX IQ robot designs and the challenge, and we have extra meetings occasionally to work on things like programming, driving practice, and our STEM project.
We’re constantly learning and striving to improve
We love to drive in teamwork challenges with lots of different teams and robots, and we try to learn something from every match. We particularly enjoy making a strategy with our teamwork partners, and although things don’t always go the way we’ve hoped and planned, it’s great when the plan works out and we get a great score with our partner team!
VEX IQ Team 80516 standings
Team 80516E had an epic Ringmaster season, and emerged as the #2 team in the WORLD for teamwork, and #3 for Skills. Making it to the finals in Freedom Hall was more than we’d hoped for, and was an incredible experience that we’ll remember forever!!!
