Agenda

Daily Activities (Monday-Friday):

*Prerequisite: Completed VEX 1 Robotics Camp or Equivalent Experience on a team.

In this two-week long camp rising 7th through 10th grade students will work in groups of 2 - 4 to design, build, and program a VEX robot to compete in the current VEX Robotics Competition. We intend on using the V5 system. Students will focus on learning new skills in approaching the strategic design, build and programming of a robot. Additionally, teams will focus on the documentation of the design process. This camp is ideal for students who have 1-2 years of experience with VEX.

Sample Activities:

  • Build and Program a VEX
  • Develop a strategic approach to a game or challenge.
  • Learn to document modifications to code and a base robot.

Format: Students work in groups of 2-4 students, complete challenges and compete against other teams.

Friday Showcase:

Friday 9:00 to 11:30 am, students will complete a small camp competition. Parents then return to pick up students at 4:00 p.m.
