"Now I've programmed a robot to self-park, I want to discover how we can use them to support blind people in their everyday lives."Becky
Work together in small teams to master our VEX IQ robotics challenges while learning to code in the C-based programming language ROBOTC.
Senior Robotics with VEX IQ
Make the future
From day one you'll be building robots and programming them, first in a visual language and then in ROBOTC, to follow your commands. The concepts that you use in this course will be the foundations of the megatrends around automation in all walks of life.
There's something for everyone in this course as your team designs, builds, and codes the robots to tackle exciting challenges. Tournament-style competitions keep it focused and super fun. May the best robot win!
Robot skills for life
Robotics pulls together every aspect of tech and brings it all to life in the physical world. Even beyond the programming angles, use of sensors, outputs, and necessary calibrations reinforce math and physics skills, making this course one that really underpins every student's academic path.
Work together in small teams to master our VEX IQ robotics challenges while learning to code in the C-based programming language ROBOTC. Campers will use a range of sensors and switches to build competition-ready robots, which they will then program and test before entering the challenge zone. This course is ideal for teens who want to get hands-on with engineering and coding!
Robotics is a rich and stimulating environment for young people to explore goal-focused engineering concepts. The teams will follow a series of challenges for which they must design, implement, test and refine robotic solutions. They will program with a graphical user interface before moving onto the syntax-based language ROBOTC. VEX IQ is a leading educational robotics platform combining snap-together construction with sophisticated coding and flexible final products. Creativity, programming and problem-solving meet as students solve problems and compete in battles with their own designs.
