Session 2: july 17 - 31
AGE: RISING 7TH GRADERS AND OLDER
In this two-week program students will learn to use the VEX V5 robotics system and necessary programming language to build and program micro-controlled robots that respond to their environments by interpreting sensory data. Student teams will engage in regular challenges that will test their design acumen, creativity, and critical problem-solving skills. The course culminates in an on-campus competition in which students will incorporate elements from their surroundings into a creative robot that demonstrates all of the elements they have mastered during the course. The setting for this course is the School’s Griswold Science Center and Class of 2017 EFX Laboratory, a state-of-the art engineering space dedicated to fabrication projects focused in the sciences.
