"The tutors inspire us to never give up. And later in life when I am a designer, it will be helpful because I won't give up when I face a problem. I know I need to keep trying."Vivi, Electronics Student
Work in teams to master our VEX IQ robotics challenges. Students will code in the C-based programming language ROBOTC, and learn the fundamentals of structural engineering.
Senior Robotics with VEX IQ (2 day)
Robots have permeated modern life from industry through to the vacuum cleaners that clean our homes. Robots will soon help every profession from fashion designers to surgeons, will support the visually impaired and could even prepare your meals.
Designing and building a robot for a given task and then programming it to undertake that task pulls in lots of different aspects of STEM and engineering — and all are vital 21st century skills.
In this immersive two day programme, students will be introduced to the VEX IQ robotic system and learn to design and programme different types of robots to interact with the world around them. On the last day, they’ll perform in our “”robot wars”” style contest and compete against other teams.
Students will leave with a head full of ideas on how they can use robots in the future!
