ABOUT US

Who Are We ?

The Matabots are a collective group of motivated individuals who come from a variety of educational backgrounds, all with a common interest in mind: love for science and engineering. Our main purpose is to design, build, and program robots that will compete in the World VEX U Robotics competition. Along this journey, we also encourage others within our surrounding community to pursue similar goals by teaching the fundamentals of engineering and science. Through robotics we hope to inspire young professionals to advance in science, math, and technology.

A Message From Your Officers






We're glad the club has sparked your interest in robotics. It is our mission to inspire young professionals to advance in science, math, and technology. As your officers we hope to provide you with enough resources to encourage a healthy competitive environment.

COMPETITIONS

Being part of the Vex Robotics Club gives you the opportunity to be a part of the Annual Vex Robotics World Championship. Every year in April, Vex University teams from around the world travel to the United States and compete in this highly anticipated competition. We can proudly say that any CSUN student of any major on campus can be a part of the Vex Robotics Club and gain the skills to participate in the World Championship. Along with competing in events, we occasionally host the California State Regional competition for High School and Middle School Students and the annual California University Scrimmage for VEX University teams. We love serving communities.

Some Helpful Links!


VEX Youtube Channel

The VEX Youtube Channel contains a quick introduction to this year's new Robotics Challenge: Change Up . It also provides training videos for referees which is also good for students to watch so they have a better understanding of the rules. They also upload their newest products that we can buy and upload highlights of their tournaments.

PROS Download

To program our bots, we use PROS, an open source development environment for the VEX V5 EDR Platform.

VEXcode Text

Another Coding environment that we use for the VEX V5 EDR Platform is the VEXcode Text, which contains coding environment and tools similar to ones that professional programmers use.


PROS Helpful tutorials

Although it is daunting to use a new program, The PROS Website also provides many tutorials.
