VEXIQ Workshop for kids
This workshop for kids is run by the Boston University Robotics Team. The VEXIQ teams we have coached have been the VEXIQ New England Teamwork Tournament Champions for two years in a row. Students will work in small groups to design, build, program, and drive robots to play this year’s VEXIQ game Crossover. We will teach kids to design robots using SNAPCAD, and to program robots with RobotC and/or Modkit.

Topics Covered:

Robot Design Principles
Computer Aided Design using SNAP CAD
Programming using ROBOT C or Modkit
Use of sensors such as ultrasonic distance sensor, gyro sensor, and touch sensor.
