SYRACUSE — Summer robotics camps will be offered at Wawasee High School.
For grades seven to 12, introduction to VEX Robotics and the VEX Robotics competition camp will be offered. Camps will meet from 8 a.m. to noon in room A218 of the high school.
Introduction to VEX Robotics ($100) will take place June 27 to July 1. This is for campers with minimal levels of experience with robotics. Campers will spend the week studying and applying concepts in physics, engineering and computer programming. They will be introduced to the VEX Robotics platform used in the high school club and course.
Campers will construct a basic robot and program it to follow a maze. They will then modify the robot to participate in a simple game. This is a way to gain experience before participation in the WHS Robotics Club.
VEX Robotics competition camp ($50 per week) is four weeks long: July 11-15, 18-22, 25-29 and Aug. 1-5. This is for campers with all levels of experience with robotics. They will spend four weeks studying and applying concepts in physics, engineering and computer programming.
Campers will construct robotic designs and use them to compete in the VEX Robotics Challenge for the 2016-17 competition season. Robotics systems designed will include chassis, intakes, lift systems and manipulators.
