Enroll in Wando Robotics Academy

  • Thursday, June 5, 2014

The Wando High School Robotics Academy will run from July 28 to August 1. These full-day sessions last from 8:45 a.m. to 4 p.m. Cost for the camp is $200 and includes lunch each day. Classes are open to Wando High School students in grades nine through 12.

VEX robotics provides a hands-on, intense engineering experience for rising ninth through 12th-grade students who love to create, experiment and build their own inventions. Prior experience in programming or attending a past LEGO program is not required. VEX robotics builds upon LEGO Robotics technology by reinforcing engineering principles while introducing additional levels of complexity.

This allows students of various skill levels to continually be challenged while using the system. Students will learn to program using RobotC. Students will work in teams to design and create VEX robots that can accomplish engineering challenges. Students will have one week to work in a team to design, build and program a robot. Teams will be presented with challenges to overcome like obstacle courses or performing tasks. Small teams will combine into larger teams that will ultimately design, build, and program robots that will compete in a mock VEX Robotics Competition Challenge at the end of the week.

While no commitment beyond the camp is required, teachers plan use the robots from this camp as the basis of Wando's VEX Robotics Team's competition robots for the 2014–15 season.

Camp participants will be encouraged to continue participation in VEX teams during the school year.
