French International’s Declan Ing Qualifies for VEX Robotics World Championships

French International’s Declan Ing Qualifies for VEX Robotics World Championships

Earlier this month, French International eighth grader Declan Ing competed in the 2024 US Open Robotics Tournament in Council Bluff, Iowa. 

The tournament included teams from all over the US, and Declan’s team, X-Dream, finished 14th. In the weeks leading up to the competition, Declan’s team was given information about the competition and the functions each robot needed to complete. For the competition, Declan’s team needed to create a robot to compete in a game like soccer, score goals, and perform four different functions. The team worked for 10-15 hours a week for a couple of weeks to complete their robot.

Declan is the team's programmer and is responsible for coding the components for the robots to function.

Earlier this season, X-Dream won a regional tournament championship in California to advance to the US Open Robotics Tournament. They also won the 2024 Oregon State VEX Robotics Championships, which qualified them for the VEX Robotics World Championship in Texas in late April.
