This is the website for S.M.A.R.T., the Brookside High School Robotics Team. We participate in VEX Robotics tournaments. Our VEX team number is 6403.
Students at Brookside are gearing up for the new Starstruck and Crossover games. We have 3 HS VEX VRC teams, 3 new MS VEX VRC teams, and 12 Elem VEX IQ teams. We will be hosting a HS Starstruck tournament again as well as 2 Elementary Crossover tournaments.
During the 2015-16 school year, we competed with 3 High School VEX VRC teams (6403A & 6403B & 6403C) & 6 Elementary VEX-IQ teams (6403U, 6403V, 6403W, 6403X, 6403Y, & 6043Z).
Also in 2016, Brookside hosted our first VEX IQ Tournament on January 16th. Team 6403Z won the Excellence Award and was one of the Teamwork Champions. Team 6403U won the Robot Skills award and team 6403X won the Programming Skills award. All 3 teams are qualified for State!
Then on February 6th, we hosted a VEX Nothing But Net tournament for High School teams. This tournament included 32 teams from 12 schools and also a demonstration by the US Army! Team 6403A ended the qualifying rounds ranked 6th but lost in the semi-finals to the championship alliance. Team 6403B was ranked 11th and also became an alliance captain, but lost in the quarter-finals.
Besides designing and building robots, team members are busy updating this website and working on other REC Online Challenges. We would also like to welcome our newest sponsors, Mercy and NES Health!
