In this 3-week robotics summer course, students will engage in a unique multidisciplinary project, designed to employ robot design and programming skills. We will focus on building robots using VEX hardware and software. Students will investigate concepts by working as a team to design a racecourse using the engineering process and then building it in the classroom to scale in order to compete in a race using robots. Students will also use VEX VR-code platform to code a virtual robot using a Block-based coding environment powered by Scratch Blocks. This course is intended for students with little to no programming background, although students with such a background should be able to move forward at their preferred pace.
