Robotics Phase II (Workshop)

This workshop will be presented in an online format. Registration opens 8/25/2020. 

This workshop provides the scientific concepts and the instructions to guide high school teachers and students on how to build their own robots creating their own parts. This workshop is designed to prepare high school teachers to dedicate to building robots, programming robots, assembling the track for robots, practicing how to move the robots and changing controls, understanding the rules to the competition, and automating robots for competition part. The workshop will include all instructions as pre-recorded videos. Therefore, online videos will allow individual outreach as well as a flexible work speed for the teachers. The high school level will gain access to sensors such as sonar, bump sensors, color sensors, and gyroscopes. This will allow for an entire autonomous section of the competition which is much more in depth.

Teachers will be provided with:

  • 1 Vex IQ Full Field & Game Element Kit per classroom: Feature all the required field parts, competition goals, and competition pieces needed for practice.
  • 1 Super Kit: Contains all necessary parts to build and control the competition robot. This kit will be a 1 per team, with 4 students ideally on a single team. These kits are able to create multiple robot styles allowing for alternative uses that would benefit after school clubs.
