Learn, code, play, repeat! VEXcode VR has everything you need to explore robotics without the need for a physical robot. VEXcode VR runs in a browser, includes a full 3D simulator with multiple environments, and uses a virtual robot and coding editor that is identical to what you would use for a VEX IQ kit. Each student will code their own virtual robot while learning the fundamentals of robotics engineering and computer programming.
Sessions: 4 - 12
Grades: 3 - 12
Software: VEXcode VR
Skill Level: Beginner - Advanced
Subject: Coding, Robotics
Learn about the virtual VEX IQ robot and cover basic drive and draw commands while gently introducing students to programming concepts like function calls, variables, loops, and conditionals. Students will work through a series of fun challenges like drawing spirographs, magnetic disk moving, and castle crashing.
Dive deeper into the VEX IQ sensors and features like color detection, gyro inputs, and line sensing. Then use them to complete a maze challenge.
Advance into autonomous driving concepts like obstacle avoidance and pathfinding and then use them to program the VEX IQ robot to navigate through a series of randomly changing environments.
We'll work with you to identify what areas of VEXcode programming you would like to focus on and create a customized curriculum.
Your student will:
- Learn drive commands
- Program function calls, variables, and loops
- Use gyro inputs and line sensing
- Control the robot using obstacle avoidance
- 4- 12 hrs of instruction
- After session progress reports
- A robust curriculum with tons of engagement
- Robolink certified instructors
- Win, Mac, Chromebook
- Webcam and mic
- Stable internet connection
- A quiet place to work
- Be ready to have lots of fun!
