There is still time to register for Community Robotics Teams for middle and high school students in Manassas, Alexandria, & Loudoun who don’t have a robotics team or program at their school. Registration is due September 13th for the 2019-2020 school year.
We’ll be using the VEX IQ (for beginners) and VEX Robotics Competition (VRC) platforms. VEX IQ is platform that consists of robots assembled from plastic snap-together parts. The programming used is Graphical or Text-based. VRC robots are metal and put together with metal screws and advanced parts. The programming is Text-based.
Our goal with these teams is to introduce kids to STEM and instill in them a quality robotics foundation. On a robotics team, participants learn the design process as well as gaining problem solving and teamwork skills. It’s an excellent gateway into STEM and also teaches the soft skills needed to excel in higher Ed or a professional environment.
