General Info

An Introduction to the VEX IQ Challenge - Free Half Day Course, 16th January 2020 (13:00 - 16:30)

Starting with a general overview of the platform, the course moves through a hands-on build and programming session that gives the grounding in the hardware and software.  What follows is a deep dive into learning materials, resources and online support that is available to all members of the VEX Community, allowing the team to grow as individuals in their respective roles and together as a group. How to get started and the many roles within the team will be covered in a week-by-week breakdown of going from absolute beginner to regional competitor.

Please note: All robotic kit required for this course is provided on the day
