The ABCs of Robotics (Workshop)

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

This workshop provides the basic scientific concepts of the mechanics of robotics and how to apply these concepts when building robots. It is designed to prepare elementary teachers to dedicate to building robots, programming robots, and assembling the track for robots. 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.

Teachers will be provided with:
• 1 Vex IQ Full Field & Game Element Kit per classroom: This will 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.
