Vex Robotics, 6-12, 12:00
Students will work together in teams with their own robot kits and can progress at their own pace through a curriculum with building, programming, and competition. Student progress is always tracked so returning students from previous semesters can resume the curriculum where they left off. This class is designed to run over multiple semesters so students can continue with new material. This class gives students the opportunity to learn programming skills and apply those skills to robot hardware. Students will learn programming skills using a VEX IQ curriculum designed to teach core computer programming logic and reasoning skills using a robotics engineering context. VEX IQ is a snap-together robotics platform designed to offer young students a rich and exciting introduction to the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). The system encourages teamwork, problem solving, and leadership.
