This is an advanced robotics program based on the challenge of the VEX IQ Competition, an international robotics competition.
During our weekly sessions, teams of 4-6 students will work on designing, building and programming (in Scratch or Python) a robot that can score as many points as possible in this season's game. They will have to come up with the best strategy and robot design to meet the challenge.
This program encourages the development of teamwork, critical thinking, project management and communication skills.
Participation in the competition is not mandatory, but we encourage the most motivated teams to register. Please note that there will be additional costs associated with this.
Please fill in the field below to be able to add to cart.
All equipment for building a hero bot, a playing field and game elements are provided.
The teams that would like to compete in VIQC need to attend regional and national competitions (organised over weekends, minimum 2-3 per year). If a team qualifies it will get a chance to compete at VEX Robotics World Championship held in April 2023 in Texas, US. All costs related to the competitions and trips (registration fees, travel costs, hotels, food etc) are not included in the price of tuition and will need to be covered separately.
