Robotics Club Robots are hibernating until further notice. Please check back in March for further updates.
Are you 8 to 14 years old? Do you like the idea of engineering and using robots to solve problems? If so, we’d love to see you in Robotics Club. Join teammates to take on big challenges (like how to help if an earthquake hits Vancouver), and code things to move in and react to the world around you. Bursaries are available for girls who may not otherwise be able to attend our club programs. Learn more about the different Robotics Club programs for different ages and experience levels here.
Build a Bot and Learn a Lot!
Want to try engineering and use your brain to solve complex problems? Join our Robotics Club, where you and your teammates will use LEGO® Mindstorms®, VEX® Robotics kits, and cardboard to design, build, code, and test robotic solutions to local challenges. These challenges will be presented to you in real life scenarios like facing an earthquake in Metro Vancouver or a large storm in Stanley Park.
While having fun with robotics, you will develop skills related to STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art & design, and mathematics), including creative problem-solving, logic, and collaboration.
Courses are six sessions for regular clubs and 19 sessions for the Advanced Robotics Team. Level I is for beginners and doesn't require any previous experience with robotics. For Level II and our Advanced Team, some previous experience with VEX® Robotics and/or some computer-programming ability is strongly recommended.
Apply for a Bursary!
Thanks to support from the Society for Canadian Women in Science and Technology (SCWIST), we are able to offer bursaries to girls who might not otherwise be able to afford our club programs. Bursaries subsidize 50% to 100% of the registration fees, as needed. If you receive a bursary, we will ask you to write a letter of thanks to SCWIST before the end of your camp week.
*For any questions regarding the bursary application process, please contact our Youth Program Specialist.
