Workshop Description

The field of robotics is absolutely booming. Everything from cars to thermostats and appliances are all tied to robotics and hardware engineering. If you’re excited by the thought of being an Aerospace engineer or designing the next robotic creation, then you can get a nice start on the right path with our workshop.

Teaching Platform

VEXcode VR is an easy to use platform that allows you to code a virtual robot using either Block-based coding environment powered by Scratch Blocks, or a custom developed Text-based Python interface. VEXcode VR is based on VEXcode, the same programming environment used for VEX 123, GO, IQ and V5 robots.

Concepts Learned

Robotics concepts learned will be things like event detection, automated robot motion optimization, and much more. These robots are pre-built. Use drivetrains to navigate. Use sensors to help solve mazes. Use pen features on the art canvas to code a creative drawing. Use the new electromagnet to interact with game objects in challenges.

Skill Level

RoboCode is aimed towards beginner/intermediate coders. No coding experience is required, but intermediate logic skills are needed.
