VEX World Championship
April 22-28, 2017
MAXIMUS - The all girls team from California who love a
good challenge - especially if it involves messing about with
robots. Go girls!!!!! Team photos provided by Diana of Accent Portraits.
a trail in the coding world is the Coding Queens, an all girls
team from California.
Now what was that they sang about Californian girls? Beach
Boys take note, maybe time for a new take on the original
great song! As you can see from the pictures on this page, by
way of a media review, this team, obviously with an amazing
level of tutorage from their teachers, is making headlines
locally in the US, and are about to enter the world stage.
can only stand back in awe at their achievement and
professionalism at just ten. Wow! And what a fantastic
website, with great pictures to boot. These young ladies
cannot enter the Miss Ocean competition due to age
restrictions, but they are honorary title holders in our books
as: 'Junior Miss Oceans,' due to their incredible commitment
to robotics no matter where they come in the Vex IQ competition.
as the organization that is taking over the SeaVax project
from May of this year, we are thrilled that the Coding Queens
included us in their presentations. It's wonderful to know
that across the Atlantic our US cousins are as worried about
ocean pollution as we are. We love the model that the team
made of SeaVax, stand and all.
most of all we were stunned at the quality of the display
stand that would put many professional exhibition companies to
shame. It's a fantastic effort and no wonder that this all
girls team have come so far already.
is their secret? Well, we don't know what goes on behind the
scenes, but we do know that when they research a topic, they
pull out all the stops to the point of quizzing our admin, one
of our engineers and our most junior roboteer, about how
SeaVax differentiates between fish and plastic- and thanks for
asking. The reason? So that they can present knowledgably. It
is that level of commitment that make all the difference in
any subject. It is important that when speaking on a subject
that you know about it.
consider that robotics is one of the most important
technologies for the advancement of the human race - because
robots can do things that humans
cannot, faster, safer and more economically - and that means
that these young ladies and those like her in the VEX
competitions are likely to make valuable contributions to the
future of mankind. Robotics is also great fun and so is
competing in such a brilliant arena. Gladiators, we salute
wish the Coding Queens all the very best in Kentucky in April.
- If they ever get bored with making robots do stuff,
this team could always carve a career in the world of
exhibiting. We love this display and the model that must have
taken a lot of time and care to make. Team photos provided by Diana of Accent Portraits.
FUND ME - 5TH GRADE ALL GIRLS ROBOTICS TEAM
WHO WE ARE
Meet the John Malcom Elementary Coding Queens! A 5th grade ALL GIRLS Robotics team from John S. Malcom Elementary School in Laguna
We are thrilled for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) and that for the first time in our school history enough enthusiastic girls signed up this year to form their own girl-powered team in hopes of furthering the winning legacy that our awesome 5th grade teacher, Mrs. Reimer, started 4 years ago.
Our teacher believes she is preparing Today’s Students for Tomorrows
Together with the support of our AMAZING volunteer-coach, Yazan Malkosh, and the support of all of the girls' families, we have embarked on an incredible journey that has exceeded our imaginations.... far beyond that first day we warned of how much hard work was involved.
We are participating in the 2016-2017 VEX Robotics Competition. This is the largest elementary, middle and high school robotics program in the world! Yes, this is quite an undertaking, but we know WE ARE CAPABLE!
This program involves both research projects and robotics. For the research project, the Coding Queens have chosen the Seavax, a solar powered vacuum that may be the solution to plastic ocean pollution!
The CQ's are enthusiastic and determined in their learning.
The girls have created and coded their own clawbot, who is fondly referred to as, "Zippy", and are currently working on a newly designed robot, called, "Hippy".
It’s been an exciting start to our journey, however both our teacher and coach have also taught us the power of REFINING and EVOLVING our projects and robot designs....we know we have a long way to go, and we are up for the challenge!
We have just competed at the following events:
2nd Annual VEX IQ San Diego Regional Event
1st place for the Teamwork Alliance (robotics)....which earned us our first ticket to the State VEX IQ Championship!!!
Ladera Ranch VEX IQ Crossover Tournament
1st place for the Teamwork Alliance again, as well as the 1st Place Design Award for our engineering notebook! These awards were accompanied by two more tickets to the State Championship. We also earned a prefect score on our STEM presentation of the Bluebird Marine Sysytem's Seavax!
South OC VEX IQ Tournament - St. John's Episcopal School
1st place for STEM presentation of the Bluebird Marine System's Seavax and 2nd place for Teamwork Alliance. These awards were accompanied by 2 tickets to the State Championship.

GIRLS - The Coding Queens team is unique in that they were the youngest team to compete in the 2016 VEX IQ Regional event in December out of 23 teams.
JUDGING - 24 NOV 2015
A couple weeks before our first qualifier, we were invited to a meeting with the Coding Queens, a rookie FLL team from the elementary school we attended. During the meeting, we mock judged in all three categories (project, robot, and core values).
Their skit/presentation about recycling dental products was well organized and informative. Since we haven’t visited many other FLL teams yet this season, it was interesting to hear about their research and how they chose the topic. We advised them to share their idea with people they know before their tournament, since judges love to hear about teams contacting professionals to get feedback on their solution.
Next came technical judging. They ran and explained each of their missions to us while we acted as judges. We gave them advice to emphasize the engineering process in each of their attachments (to show old attachments and explain why they didn’t work). A couple of us also took a look at their EV3 programming, where we advised them to use comments for organization and to help the judges.
Lastly, we ran the Coding Queens through a Core Values exercise. We split them into two equal teams and gave one a bunch of LEGO pieces. The other team received a randomly built
LEGO model, created with pieces identical to the other team’s. The team with the model had to communicate to the other team how to build it, all without either team looking at each other. It was very fun to see the Coding Queens work together and try to describe the model to the other group. In the end, the structure they built was pretty close to the original, and they learned an important lesson in slowing down and patience when communicating with their teammates.
After the exercise, we had a brief Core Values judging session in which we asked them about team conflicts, organization, and core values like Gracious Professionalism and Coopertition. Before leaving, we had the four Posse members do the same exercise as the Coding Queens. Despite some communication mix-ups and a whole lot of laughter, we were somewhat successful (even if some pieces were backwards!). It was a lot of fun to mentor the
Coding Queens and we wish them the best of luck at their regional tournament!
