Build and program your own metal robot using the VEX Robotics system for an alliance-based camp competition. You will learn advanced engineering concepts, as well as programming for both autonomous and human-controlled operation. Campers are encouraged to develop their own creative and practical designs, and formulate strategies with their alliance partners.
No prior experience with robotics is needed; this camp will seek to take classroom topics and standards and apply them in a fun, engaging, and hands-on way.
Students will work on the Whitney campus, designing, building, and programming their very own robot for an exciting finale camp competition. This enables cooperative participation and a hands-on learning experience with the engineering process, mathematical and scientific concepts, FIRST core values, and teamwork and leadership skills.
Snacks are provided, and a Subway lunch (sandwich + chips + cookie) is available for an additional $30 per camp, or $6/day (let us know in registration comments if you would like to add lunch to the registration). The camp starts at 8:00 AM and ends at 3:00 PM every day.
This is a special class, with its own schedule of 3 available camps:
- June 18-22 (LEGO) – recommended for grades 5-9
- June 25-29 (VEX) – recommended for grades 7-12
- July 9-13 (LEGO Advanced) – recommended for more experienced students of grades 5-9
Reduced price $225 per camp is valid through April 30, then $300 per camp ($500 for 2 camps, $750 for 3 camps).
