Kealakehe captained winning alliance the last two years winning the 2010 Hawaii VEX Competition held at Imiloa Astronomy Center and the 2011 Maui Fair VEX Competition. With these wins the team attended the International VEX competition at ESPN's Wide World of Sports Complex at Disney World on April 14–16, 2011 and will attend the 2012 VEX National Competition in Omaha, Nebraska as well as the 2012 VEX International Competition at Disney Land April 18–21, 2012. The VEX Robotics Competition (VRC) is a robotics competition utilizing the VEX robotics platform. VEX Robotics, Inc. contracts the non-profit Robotics Education and Competition Foundation to organize and operate the worldwide VEX Robotics Competition. Teams build and program a robot to complete a task revealed each year.
VRC is played on a 12'x12' square field. Two alliances – one "red" and one "blue" – composed of two teams each, compete in each match which consists of a twenty-second autonomous period followed by two minutes of driver-controlled play. The object of the game is to attain a higher score than your opponent alliance by accruing points according to the game elements laid out in that year's rules. In some years, additional points could be earned by positioning the robot at the end of the match. In Elevation, Clean Sweep, and Round Up, a bonus was awarded to the alliance that has the most total points at the end of the Autonomous Period. In Gateway though, there is no autonomous bonus. The winning alliance (and runners up at events with 51 or more teams) at each local competition qualify for the VEX World Championship. The winners of the Robot Skills and Programming Skills Challenges also qualify for the VEX World Championship. In addition, the winner of the "Excellence Award" at each tournament with at least 18 teams qualifies for the Vex World Championship.

Famous quotes containing the word vex:
“Sweet, let me go! Sweet, let me go!
What do you mean to vex me so?
Cease, cease, cease your pleading force!”
—Unknown. Sweet, Let Me Go! (L. 13)
“Oh, to vex me, contraries meet in one:
Inconstancy unnaturally hath begot
A constant habit; that when I would not
I change in vows, and in devotion.
As humorous is my contrition
As my profane Love, and as soon forgot:
As ridlingly distempered, cold and hot,”
—John Donne (15721631)
“Manners are of more importance than laws.... Manners are what vex or soothe, corrupt or purify, exalt or debase, barbarize or refine us, by a constant, steady, uniform, insensible operation, like that of the air we breathe in.”
—Edmund Burke (17291797)
