VEX IQ is a popular robotic platform used in elementary, middle and high schools. Students taking this workshop will learn how to assemble a robot using the VEX Platform. Students will be challenged with practical problems to demonstrate principles of programming and the influence of structure on performance. By the end of the week, students will have a basic understanding on the structure, motors, gears, power, sensors and much more. This workshop will be useful for those who want to develop their robotics skills as well as those wanting to join a competitive VEX robotics team.
