Master

Digital Robotics: VEX VR

Grades 4-10

Do you love robots, and want to learn how to make them do really cool things? Using VEX VR, participants enter a coding laboratory where they can explore the exciting world of robotics and coding! Participants use VEXcode to explore how to make their digital robots come to life. During the program, participants learn how to write code to make their virtual robots perform project-oriented tasks and participate in exciting challenges. Learning about robots and computer programming has never been so much fun! This program provides an introduction to robotics and computer programming, participants use VEXcode, a “drag and drop” block coding language similar to Scratch. No prior experience is necessary, some familiarity with computers is helpful.
