VEX® Robotics Design System | ROBOTC
Prerequisite: The ability to work in teams
Equipped with the sophisticated VEX® Robotics Design System and sensors, learn coding fundamentals in ROBOTC that will command your bot. Confronted by a series of challenges, your small team will continually re-engineer its mechanical creation and fine tune its coded instructions, assessing performance and implementing effective design. Featured are STEM principles of hands-on mechanics, critical thinking and collaboration.
You and a small team in this summer robotics camp for teens will be confronted by a series of challenging tasks that continually increase in complexity, prompting you to re-engineer your robot’s mechanics and fine tune its coding instructions. By constantly assessing performance and implementing designs that you think will be the most effective, you will gain a strong foundation in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) principles of hands-on mechanics, critical thinking and collaboration. Are you up for the challenge?
You can expect roughly 6-7 hours a day of class instruction, with plenty of time for campus excursions, socializing, outdoor activities, video game tournaments, and more. Parents want peace-of-mind and student supervision—teens want a taste of independence. At iD, we work hard to provide the right balance. We hope to make your experience valuable and memorable.
