VEX Robotics - BattleBots

In-person delivery
Ages 14 to 17 (high school grades)

Why learn robotics on our own when we can develop our skills together and then test them against other teams? Participants will utilize the Engineering Design Process and computational problem-solving to build and program robots using VEX EDR Robotics. Participants will work in teams to design their robot, which will include motors, sensors, and hardware components that are controlled with code, without the need for external influence. At the end of the week, all the robots will battle until there is one robot standing!

Activity example: Sumo Challenge - Robots designed by camper groups to fit certain specifications enter a battle arena, and are responsible for knocking the other robot out of the challenge area.
