Students will be working in teams on building and programming a robot. Courses are 6 sessions long for regular clubs and 19 sessions long (plus tournament days) for the Competitive Robotics Team. Level I is for beginners and doesn't require any previous experience with Robotics. Level II requires previous experience with VEX® Robotics. The Robotics Competitive Team doesn't require previous experience with VEX® Robotics, but it is strongly recommended.

What's VEX® Robotics?
The VEX Robotics Design System offers students an exciting platform for learning about areas rich with career opportunities spanning science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). These are just a few of the many fields students can explore by creating with VEX Robotics technology. Beyond science and engineering principles, a VEX Robotics project encourages teamwork, leadership and problem solving among groups.
What's the VEX® Robotics Team?
The VEX® Competitive Team will work together to create robots for specific challenges and test their designs against other teams in the area. Visit the Robotics Education & Competition Foundation for more information and go to Pacific Youth Robotics Society to learn about local tournaments and provincial and world championships.
What's LEGO® Mindstorms®?
The Lego Mindstorms series of kits contain software and hardware to create customizable, programmable robots. They include an intelligent brick computer that controls the system, a set of modular sensors and motors, and LEGO parts from the Technics line to create the mechanical systems.
