The VEX IQ robotics kit used at Bot Camp provides a powerful robotics platform capable of producing highly functional robots, while simple enough for students without robotics experience to assemble and program. It provides a broad range of challenges, providing the instructor with a versatile kit that can be used to teach everything from basic to advanced concepts. Bot Camp is one of the first robotics camps to use the VEX IQ kit in Canada.
Below is an example of an advanced VEX IQ robotics competition robot. This robot was built by VEX IQ Team 314A: “The Rocky Mountain πrates” from Boulder, Colorado, USA. Their robot was named “The Flying Pig” and ranked 1st in Programming Skills, 2nd in Teamwork, 4th in Robot Skills and won the Build Award in the VEX IQ Middle School Division of the 2014 VEX Robotics World Championships.
Vex IQ competitive robots consists of teams of students whoare tasked with designing and building a robot to play against other teams fromaround the world in a game-based engineering challenge. Students learn lifelongskills in teamwork, leadership, communications, and more. Tournaments are helpsthroughout the school year at the regional, state and national levels. Localchampions go on to compete against the best in the world at the Vex WorldChampionships in April.
