Ground Robotics 2020

This introductory-level camp is for students who are new to robotics. Students will work with Ozobots, Lego Mindstorm and VEX IQ, and EDR Robots depending on grade level and capability. The camp will focus on skills used in robotics including creativity, teamwork, and problem-solving. The Mindstorm platform will introduce basic GUI (Graphical User Interface) programming. With VEX, students will begin by building the basic clawbot and work with the remote-controlled robot to compete in team-based activities against other teams. Students will then be challenged to adjust their VEX robot to do other types of challenges. Once the students are comfortable with building and adjusting their robot to meet a specific task, the instructors will begin teaching basic RobotC programming. Students will work as they learn. Instructors will teach concepts and ideas as needed by each group.
