Event description

Description

Ideal for Design & Technology and Computer Science teachers new to VEX Robotics and those that have been thinking about involvement but not quite taken the plunge. This session will provide an introduction to VEX Robotics followed by a hands-on activity which will cover some basic building and programming using our VEX IQ kits! The best bit? The kit you use to build on the day, you will take away at the end of the session for four weeks to continue exploring the kits*. What better way to find out all of the ways in which VEX Robotics can positively impact your classroom?

VEX Robotics is the leading platform for educational robotics around the world. With the tool-less, plastic VEX IQ platform for Key Stages 2 & 3 and the metal VEX EDR system for Key Stages 3, 4 and 5, it is perfectly placed to allow students to grow and develop in an open-ended, problem-solving and engaging way.

The free programming software, ranging from Modkit, our simple drag and drop format through to the more advanced ROBOTC, based on C++ language makes VEX accessible to all. The free curriculum across Design & Technology, Engineering and Computer Science means the kits can be used in the classroom and as part of the extracurricular VEX Robotics competitions. These are the largest and fastest growing robotics competitions in the world with events held each year across over 40 countries around the world. Involvement in the competition develops key skills in competitors including teamwork, time management, perseverance – all of which are valued by employers
