Tom Atwood of Robot Magazine writes with an update on the Grant Imahara VEXplorer Robot Challenge, "25 robot enthusiasts are competing for a first-place $5,000 scholarship on YouTube, and the videos that are the contest entries can be viewed at the VEX Robotics VEXplorer Challenge webpage. Second prize is a $2,000 scholarship, and Innovation First will give $200 gift certificates to 10 additional winners in this competition to produce a creative, different cool application using only VEXplorer kit parts and any other components that were made available to contestants via a $100 credit at www.vexrobotics.com. Use of SolidWorks in the project (a student license is included in the VEXplorer package) and good videography strengthens a contestants score when entries are judged. Mythbuster Grant Imahara is the contest judge. The contest is sponsored by Revell, Innovation First, SolidWorks and Robot magazine. Winners will be announced in the September-October issue of Robot, available in July.". For more, see our previous article on the VEXplorer Robot Challenge.
