General Info

Welcome to the VEX Robotics workshop for beginners, organized by the University of Sharjah! This workshop is designed to introduce you to the exciting world of robotics and teach you the fundamentals of building and programming robots using the VEX Robotics system.

The VEX Robotics system is a popular platform for robotics education and competitions, and is used by schools and universities around the world. In this workshop, you will learn how to use VEX Robotics components, such as motors, sensors, and structural elements, to build robots of various sizes and shapes.

During the workshop, you will work in teams to build and program a basic VEX robot. You will learn how to use the VEXcode programming environment to write code that controls your robot's movements and behaviors. You will also learn how to troubleshoot common issues and optimize your robot's performance.

By the end of the workshop, you will have gained a solid understanding of the basics of robotics and be able to apply your knowledge to build and program more advanced robots. This workshop is the perfect starting point for anyone interested in pursuing a career in robotics or simply wanting to learn more about this exciting field.
