Summer is the best time to join a Rolling Robots Team. Our teams are by invitation only and we usually select the best students from our regular membership. During summer there is an opportunity to learn and prove your students abilities to join a team by taking up to 3 weeks of summer camp. Depending on prior experience students should take a building class, a coding class and a competition team class.
For elementary school age students the team is the VEX IQ Robotics Challenge. The fast track camps are:
Here are some basic descriptions about what to expect in each of our camps:
VEX IQ Building and Coding
Learn to build and code robots using the VEX IQ system. Directed at elementary school level, students will build a robot and learn to code for several sensors. The robot is the same type of robot used by the VEX IQ Competition Teams.
Vex IQ Competition
Compete in a 2018 VEX IQ Challenge game. Students will build a robot to play the game Next Level. They will learn to code for the autonomous part of the game and learn to drive for the driver part of the game. Along the way they will learn problem solving and teamwork skills.
Students learn about structures, gears, motors, wheels, and the use of tools to build their own remote controlled robots with the VEX system.
Vex EDR Code with Robot C
Students will learn to program VEX robots in the Robot C Language (which is used in Robotics Competitions). Students will learn to implement motors, remote control, digital and analog sensors.
VEX EDR Competition
Build, Program and Compete in 2018 VEX Challenge game.
