On December 3, Waialua High and Intermediate School participated in the Aloha VEX IQ Qualifier tournament held at the Mid Pacific Institute in Manoa. Only VEX IQ team 359A participated in this event. We had about 5 matches that day. The first thing we did was attempt our  driver skills. Our first attempt at driver skills was okay, we achieved a score of 52 points but we can score at least 65 points. Later on, during the tournament between one of our matches we attempted a driver skills but unfortunately we did not do as well as we planned. With perseverance we tried again and succeeded with a score of 52. Through the tournament we experienced many challenges including creating new routines with many different alliances. Strategizing with our alliances at the Aloha VEX IQ Qualifier was possibly one of the hardest things to learn. Something that occurred multiple times during the tournament was that the robot would have some complications between matches like the shaft popping out of the motors. To prevent this we had to do a thorough check on the robot before each match. We also observed new ideas from other teams. Something we were able to compare between our team and others, was that we had different designs and ideas involving the robot. Through consistent hard work we were able to obtain robot skills champion award. Win or lose, we still had fun!
