Are there other VEX Parts?


Do you have a list of all the VEX parts?  I want to order just a few, but I do not know what the part numbers are can you help?

Sure do! How about a manufacturing process brochure? This way students have to do a bit of research, (1 to 2 days) on given material, then post them for other students to see.  I post mine in a hand outs folder on the network.Also included in the activity is a list of topics to choose from.

The brochure is a Publisher template, or a Word template that you give them; after all, this is not about using publisher or software is it?!? Just be sure that students replace all the pictures and text in the template with their own. You’ld be surprised at the number of students who don’t!


On the second page of the handout is a rubric to use for scoring, and step three of the project is my favorite! Kids write a multiple choice quiz question, upon which they are evaluated, and then I take all of the electronically submitted questions, put it into a quiz; after editing of course, and then allow the kids to take the quiz “open brochure” style. This means they can look through all the students brochures to get the answers. This way they learn a little bit about ALL the processes, not just theirs!
