LinkedKey VEX-IQ Robotics

The course will be broken down into 5 Modules designed to teach different concepts related to robotics. The first will be focused around teaching the basic concepts of programming and how that relates to robotics. The second and third will be focused on how sensors interact with code and mechanical designs and the fourth to final will give the students a taste of competition by allowing them to compete against each other using all of the skills they have learned. The goal after the 3 stages is to have students who are ready to take on the world competitively in VEX IQ.

What is VEX-IQ Robotics

VEX IQ is a competitive platform designed to allow elementary and middle school students the ability to easily build robotic systems while leaving enough room to create complex robots capable of truly spectacular feats. Robotics creates leaders, engineers and team members. Kids learn all aspects of tech from hardware to software and will learn the complexities of how these two systems interact.VEX IQ is easy learning for kids of any age or ability.
