General Info

This workshop is for coaches of VEX IQ Challenge teams who are new to robotics and who want to learn more. It is intended primarily for coaches of teams sponsored by Nelson Team Grants that will be participating in one of the LAUSD VEX IQ Leagues. The workshop will consist of three main sections:

08:00-09:50     Build a Basic Robot (Optional)
09:50-10:00     Break
10:00-10:45     Team Logistics
10:45-12-30     Basic Programming

Please bring a charged laptop and a VEX IQ Super KIt with a charged Robot Battery and a charged Remote Controller Battery. VEX IQ battery charging instructions are in back of the VEX IQ User Guide. You may want to bring a light-colored towel to use as a work surface, to keep the small parts from rolling off the table.

If your team has already built a robot based on Clawbot or Flex, you can skip the Build a Basic Robot session, bring the robot and the rest of the Super Kit, and join us during the Break. A limited number of extra Super Kits will be available.

This is a voluntary workshop; there will not be any monetary compensation.
