Summary of 2019 VEX Worlds Championship

VEX 2019世锦赛总结


难忘的一次经历。

久别重逢

作为刚刚转入国际班的新生,我很荣幸被韩老师选中参加VEX2019世锦赛。赛前,有激动、欣喜,也有紧张与茫然。VEX,于我而言是一个既熟悉又陌生的竞赛项目。初中时在韩老师的带领下参加了“一网打尽”和“星光璀璨”两个赛季,也收获了很多。本以为与VEX在此分道扬镳,没想到如今的久别重逢。与熟悉的金属结构件相遇、与机器人对抗电机高速旋转的齿轮声相遇,更重要的,更重要的是与初中时有着共同热爱与梦想的同学们和老师重逢。这一切都让我激动不已,就像是星星之火在无数个暴风雪夜之后重新成为熊熊烈火一样,照亮了我的心。

当然,新的问题接踵而至。VEX推出了全新的V5主控套装,新的编程环境,这一切都是需要我去学习和尽快掌握新的知识;这里有了更多陌生的面孔,有身经百战的学姐和学长、还有已经征战将近一个赛季的国一的同学们。而我,作为一个新加入机器人社团大家庭的人,如何让大家认识我、了解我、信任我是亟待解决的问题。

在赛前,我努力地尝试编写自动程序,当小球被精准地吸入机器人的储球仓时、当小球射中旗杆的那一刹那,那种久违的激动与喜悦再次涌上心头,每一行代码,都是自己思考过后的体现,每一次正确编译和执行,都有着小小的成就感。

我找回了那种感觉,拾起了彼时的梦想,找寻到了志同道合的朋友们。同时也学习了新的知识,结识了新的朋友,更有了新的体悟。

我们在一起

A perfect event

A fantastic and amazing event that I will never forget

I was in the front of the lobby hanging our robot with my teammate

The VEX Worlds Champion is held in the expo of Kentucky. It’s really big and great. When I first stepped into the west wing that our competition will be held, a strong feeling of achievement and happiness came to my heart suddenly. You’ll never know how excited I was at that time.

The true first day of 2019 VEX Worlds

Fantastic & Unsatisfactory flights

The marvellous sun rising in the morning on the flight from Xi'an to Beijing
The first trip begin at 6:00 in the morning, it’s the most intensive boarding for me, which we arrived the airport an hour earlier and boarded before the taking off for just 30 minutes.
Also, the huge robots are carrying to the special channel. I heard the obvious noise when the conveyor belt was running.

On the flight, everybody was very tired because of staying up the whole night. But I didn’t feel sleepy, looking at the outside of the windows. It was charming and moving and also I have never seen the sunrise before.

May be the FIRST DAY?

It’s 2:51 now. I am in the robot laboratory in the school with my team members.

Everything is prepared. We’ll set out at 3:30. It’s surely the earliest time that I get to school and the earliest time to leave school. My classmates will have the mid term examination. I am a little fortunate but also a bit regretful.

I deem that today’s work about programming of autonomous is greater than any other day. I have debugged 4 kind of programs in different position. You know that, the feeling of hit the ball completely is really fantastic.

The 9 days VEX Worlds trip is beginning from now. There must be something exciting and also depressing. But everything will become the most valuable and forgettable memories and experiences for me.

By the way, perhaps I can be the one who waving the flag in the central stage at the VEX Worlds opening ceremony.

I don’t know why I am not sleepy at all now, although I was so sleepy right now. Hope it can be a good starts!

We’ll go to Beijing at first, and go to Chicago maybe one day later.

Coming back

How is life? Fantastic!

long time no see!

It’s been a long time since I has wrote the last passage. But I am sure that I will continue to writing in future.

Special date

The mid-term examination will begin tomorrow. It must be the longest and richest exam I had ever participated. A little nervous with excitement. I don’t know what will be asked tomorrow, but I really enjoy the exam by English.

So, why I am writing now instead of reviewing? I planed to review the geography and history during the late-self study. To my surprise, I finish my goal earlier and even review the chemistry and physics.

Country Road Take Me Home

I could say that it’s the best song and lifelong song to me. It involves too much motions and affection for me. I still remember listening this song in the whole time of staying on the Boeing 787 belonged to Hainan Airline. That’s a trip has had left a deep mark in my heart and also has changed the rest of my life.

Lucky

Coming to the international course, there are many unbelievable and surprising things happened.

  • I met CRX many times by accident.
  • I got back to working on VEX Robotics Competition and gain the qualification to go to the World Championships. (one week later!!!)
  • I finally stand on the same side with my best friends Billy.
  • All the classmates and teachers are friendly and benignant.
  • Many times when I was doing the math questions, I find the shadow of computer science.
  • I am going to participate an math competition named ARML. It’s my first time to do math by groups. I am really keen on working with groups and enjoying the different thinking collison.
  • I met a person that I even forget his name and where I met by accidently. He is from the international course in middle school who is the merely person that I have recognized in that course.
  • There are so many things I want to talk about…

Keeping on!

After writing the diary, I really feel more delighted.


Thanks for your reading.

HIT REFRESH

It’s my first blog in English.

There are tremendous things to say, but I deem that I don’t have enough time.

Firstly, I made a decision that maybe the first I made by myself. It’s also why I use English. I have transferred to international class. I want to go abroad.

There are many reasons cause this decision. I think the major one is that I went to Seattle, US in winter vacation. I really prefer the atmosphere there and I got a feeling of unrestrained. And now the life here is fantastic. I can talk to foreign teacher freely and meet a group of friendly classmates and teachers.

I live in the dorm. It’s unprecedented for me to sleep on time and get up on time. Every day I feel energetic and optimism.

Just like return to the primary school life. I really enjoy it. Also, it has a lot of challenges. I face to TOEFL test and many other tests.

That’s all.

By the way, I will go to Chicago in April. Hope everything will be OK!

The last day in seattle

西雅图夜未眠

“Country road, take me home, to the place, I belong……”, 完强老师的吉他演唱一直回荡在我耳边。从未想过,这里,如此让我留恋。

今天西雅图市区参观的行程很紧,很多地方都只停一小会儿,但整个体验还是不错的。当我站在gas park的岸边,远眺对岸的Seattle Downtown,偶尔有几只海鸥紧贴地面飞翔,看着远处的云朵被阳光穿透,一点一点地朝我们照来。一切都很安静,一切都很和谐,站在这里,吹着海风,一切烦恼都被抛在脑后,只希望这一刻可以永远持续下去……

下午很早就回到了酒店,然后换正装前往晚宴地点。乘坐电梯上至高层,来到了我们的晚宴地点。这里真的好高端啊,落地窗户直接可以看到整个西雅图(贝尔维尤?)市中心,风景十分美。

西雅图-Day7

Microsoft


终于梦想成真了!早上大概十点多钟,我们来到微软总部,这里特别像一所大学,区域也是什么东校区、西校区。所有的建筑物都是低楼层的单体建筑,算是一片规模庞大的建筑群了。

我们首先去了33号楼参观,应该是一栋办公楼,无意中踏进一间会议室,整个房间的灯瞬间就全部亮了起来,连电脑的大屏幕都开启了,是真的智能办公。

接着来到了微软的一个餐厅,那一瞬间,我在想如果能留住气味该多好。顺着神奇的空中木制阶梯,我们走到了sailing house,就像是树屋一样。透过窗户,可以看到里面还有人在编程。这种办公氛围真的是十分惬意。

然后就是微软展览馆和纪念品店。真的是十分激动,亲眼看到了surface studio,亲自试听了surface headphone,再看看价钱,真香!

在纪念品商店,看到了很多印有logo的周边,马上就要到集合时间了,我见到中意的衣服就拿,还有一个巨大无比的购物袋。最后结账的时候看着金额噌噌噌往上涨,心在滴血啊。还是放回去了一些小东西。最后提着大包小包上车了。但还是迟到了,耽误了大家的行程,真的很抱歉。但是看着信仰充值成功,终于拥有了正版的微软周边,也还是很开心的。希望这些东西能够成为一些念想,希望每当看到这些,总能想起我的梦想,想起这家伟大的公司。

西雅图-Day6

创意挑战赛


坐过山车的一天。

我们小组也许是整个上午最悠闲的,但下午,绝对是最痛苦的。

整个早上的一半时间我都在搭建项目网页,无非就是一些图片添加,文字复制粘贴,视频上传一系列按部就班的工作。也顺带把图标设计、组名、标语等一系列杂七杂八的次要任务全部完成了。当域名成功访问、当创意鲜明的logo大功告成的时候,还是有那么一些小激动,之前都是访问别人的酷炫项目网页,而今天,也终于轮到了自己,为整个小组搭好“门面”。

另一半时间,遨游于面包板的海洋,在赤橙黄绿青蓝紫的连接线里来回穿梭……这也许是我第一次写这么长的代码(对各位大佬而言不值一提),看着舵机疯狂地旋转、跑马灯胡乱地闪亮以及蜂鸣器肆无忌惮地聒噪,debug的过程也是一种难得的享受。

黑色的下午……我们组的3D打印件似乎出了一些问题,密封性和传动性都达不到预期。展示的亚克力底板还是一片空白,心里有点空虚。功夫不负有心人,我们组的机械大佬最终硬是用最原始的工具解决了最棘手的问题,本人佩服得五体投地。
