JRE Adventures-in-Robotics Robot-design INtro-to-Aurd Engineering-&-Programming-with-the-Arduino-Platform Vex
Duration: 5 Days (3 Hours per Day)
Pre-requisite: none
Target Ages: 7+ years
Skill level: beginners
Course Description
Learn robotics with LEGO Education WeDo. Build snapping alligators, race cars, and spinning robots, then program them with the WeDo visual drag-and-drop programming software.
In this robotics course, students are taught engineering basics with an emphasis on exploration and trial and error field testing. Instead of simply “snapping bricks together,” students are encouraged to think critically about how and why their design needs to adapt to changing conditions. Our guided, personalized instruction allows younger kids to understand more complicated engineering techniques such as gear use, pulleys, and inclined planes.
What Will Students Take Home?
Each student will go home with photos of the robot they created during the week.

Our robotics engineering courses for teens are all about the bots. Working in small teams, students use the VEX Robotics Design System to compete in fun real-world challenges like robo-soccer, obstacle courses, capture-the-flag, tag, maze solving, and much more! The VEX Robotics Design System is both user-friendly and powerful, and it’s the same system used in major regional and national robotics competitions, as well as in many high school and university-level robotics classes.
Use the VEX Robotics Design System to build a frame and base, interchange wheels, create geared armatures, and engineer wiring. Your team’s bot will have to adapt to compete in user-piloted challenges such as robo-soccer and obstacle courses, as well as autonomous robot challenges that will require programmed instructions created on a PC. Each day will bring a new challenge, and your team’s robot will have to morph to compete. Advanced students will have the opportunity to learn about building complex robotic sensors, advanced robot arms, drive trains, and programming “smarter” robots.
