ROBOTICS TEAM - AFTER SCHOOL
fOR GIRLS AND BOYS
IN grades 3-5
This robotics program uses the building kits, curriculum and games designed by VEX IQ to facilitate a challenging hands on after school program. By its nature, the study of robotics inherently incorporates all four pillars of STEM. VEX IQ is a snap-together robotics system designed from the ground up to provide this opportunity to future engineers of all skill levels.
Teams of students are tasked with designing and building a robot to compete in a game-based engineering challenge. Teams are made up of 4 students and a mix of boys and girls is encouraged at all levels. By packaging advanced concepts into an accessible package, the VEX system also naturally encourages teamwork, problem solving, and leadership.
