Agenda

The camp will run from 8AM to 12PM Monday - Friday for two weeks.

Week 1 - Each day will focus on one of the subsystems commonly used in VEX IQ. The day starts with a lesson and guided building. Students then form small groups to make a robot that will drive in a minigame at the end of the day. 

Week 2 - Students will spend the second week of camp building a robot for the 2022-2023 IQ game Slapshot. At the end of the week, there will be a scrimmage run with the official Tournament Manager system.
