Introduction to Robotics (Grades 6th - 8th)

About Robotics

TCAPS and LEAP are excited to offer an introductory workshop on competitive robotics using the VEX IQ platform. Students will learn best practices to be successful in VEX IQ competition while having fun with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) skills. Students will also gain hands on experience while working through the engineering process in a small class. Parents are invited to participate at no extra cost. (No experience necessary) We will also have information available on how to start a Vex robotics team at your TCAPS Elementary or Middle School. This 4 week workshop (held at West Middle School) is geared towards elementary or middle school students (sign up for the middle school workshop here) who have never worked with the VEX IQ platform or those who have struggled in the past knowing where to begin. Students are required to bring a notebook (graph paper is best) and pen. Think your student is interested? Sign up today!
