STEM with Robotics

Our Virtual Robotics Program encourages creativity and problem solving for all skill levels. This week-long program can be completed by an independent learner or with assistance from someone in the home. We will provide the curriculum, tools and support to provide hands-on learning beyond the 5 days of this experience. 

July 6 – 10

What will you learn?

 

Participants will explore coding and robotics concepts and how they relate to the real world, Using Vex VR, learners will gain an understanding of the robotics design process. Each day, they will be exposed to computer science and engineering terminology.

Additionally, this program will introduce learners to programming concepts and the programming language used by Vex. Learners will participate in daily coding sprints, learn how sensors are used in autonomous driving, use loops to streamline code and collaborate with other campers in group programming challenges.
