General Info

Imagine a VEX Robotics Season compressed into 5 days.  Participants will be divided into small teams and work together to design, build and program a competition robot for the 2018-2019 VEX Robotics Challenge (pending challenge game piece availability). This is a great way for VEX Robotics Team members to get a jump start on next year’s VRC challenge.   This is also an excellent opportunity for any youth to see what it’s like to be on a VEX Robotics Team. Students will be coached on robot design, building techniques, and programming strategies.

This event is open to students going into 7-12 Grade for the upcomming school year.

Camp runs from 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM each Day.
