Who are the Matabots?
The Matabots are student members of the California State University, Northridge VEX Robotics Club. Our annual objective is to design, construct and program two robots that will compete in the VEX Robotics World Championship. We also promote new teams to participate in the VEX Competitions through mentoring local high schools and colleges on VEX Design foundations and methodology.
The California State University, Northridge VEX Team was the first team to enter the VEX Robotics University Division in 2010. We were also one of the first teams to inspire our community through the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) program of VEX robotics. Our VEX program reaches beyond the CSUN Engineering department and is open to any student with a drive and passion for robotics, team design and competition. Team environment, community outreach and robotics principles are the core values of the CSUN VEX Robotics Program, opening minds to the challenging and rewarding world of science and engineering.
What’s Been Happening?
The CSUN VEX Robotics Club has grown an astonishing 950% from our starting membership of four in 2010. Unfortunately, our funding has failed to grow at this same rate. With your sponsorship, we hope to achieve our funding goal of 5,000 dollars, which will help us continue our outreach to inspire young scholars.
How can you Help?
We hope to achieve our funding goal of $5,000 to help sustain the club. We understand that nothing in life is free, that is why we are willing to show you our deepest gratitude in the form of various gifts. We will be extremely grateful for any contributions made to the CSUN Matabots. The funds that we receive will go directly to our club account where we will utilize more resources such as:
Hosting High School / Middle School Competitions
VEX Team & VEX World Competition Registration
The Arduino robots are currently under construction. They have been programmed to rove autonomously, avoiding obstacles in their path. We expect them to be finalized in January, ready for shipping in February.
