VEX Robotics and Coding Lab Description

We are teaching VEX Robotics Curriculum which has been created by Carnie Mellon Robotics Academy to teach STEM. We are specifically using Virtual Robotics plus project-based VEX IQ hardware which is the VEX IQ Robotics starter kit for elementary students during our project time.

Here are some highlights of our after school robotics program:

  • Advance coding skills: We teach RobotC programing language which is graphical programming with the capability of transitioning to text-based coding. We will primarily be using virtual robotics to implement our code.
  • Skill Building: We teach STEM, leadership, collaboration, innovation, creativity and problem-solving.
  • Transitions to competition level robotics: As students progress with follow up courses, they may join and participate in nationwide competitions.
  • Future potential to acquire certification from Carnegie Mellon University: As enthusiastic students progress with follow up courses they may accomplish a higher level to be able to apply for a certificate from Carnegie Mellon with a $50 fee.
  • Students who stick with VEX as they earn badges they will over time build a portfolio for their college portfolio as the VEX curriculum continues through high school.

Projects in the after school program
Students will learn how robots work. Students will learn to control virtual and physical robots with codes. Students will perform simple projects where they will perform multiple independent tasks involving controlling sensors (color sensor, touch LED sensor, gyro sensor, distance sensor, bumper switch and motor encoders). Students will become confident and competent in robotics.

The class has 5 available spots.
