intelligent Brain “Alone we can so little, together we can do so much.” Together, the four us won two regional competitions and 1 nation competition earning first place in skills and teamwork categories in one of the competitions and 1st place in skills category in another one. Our story began in October 2018 at Emirates Science Club. Each one of us came from a different school and grade-sand interest. Sultan, he is in grade six and he is the team leader, Gaith in seventh grade he is the programming leader, Mohammed in sixth grade he is designing leader and Abdulla eighth grade he is mechanics leader. Yet, we all shared one passion that is robotics. On that summer, the four of us had more common thing besides a passion for robotics. We had a common goal that wins the championship at the Vex World Competition. With every experience, there are plenty of lessons learned. We are very excited that we are halfway through our goal, and we can’t wait to meet talented individuals who have the same passion and goal as we do.
Community Service I’m student (Sultan Alzarooni) one of the team member, I studied at a school with no robotics trainer and I wanted to help my classmates. I established a science club inside the school. In coordination with the school administration, two days were allocated to train my colleagues to build and program the robot and introduce them to the international standards I learned at Emirates Science Club Hosting events “Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.” Through commitment, hard work, and mainly enthusiasm, the Emirates Science Club hosted the first local VEX competition that compromised of VEX IQ where more than 10 teams were competing against each other and VEX EDR that involved more than 7 teams competing against each other. The secret to any event success is effective organization. Therefore, the club called for 14 volunteers and trained them as referees. Also, to ensure spreading a passion for volunteering among children, the volunteers team involved an 8 years old kid whose task was focused on organizing the playground. Winners of this competition didn’t only win a local competition but were also nominated for the regional competition.
