PLEASE NOTE: THE CAMP WILL RUN WITH A MINIMUM OF 12 PARTICIPANTS, REGISTERED BY JUNE 28TH. EARLY REGISTRATION IS GREATLY APPRECIATED.
In this introductory level robotics camp, participants will work in partners to build, program, and drive a robot using the VEX IQ platform. Teams will work together to learn basic skills for building a robotic system, program a controller to drive the system, and program for autonomous movements (non-driver controlled). Participants will all be building, driving, and programming autonomously to play a robotics game challenge called Ringmaster!
