About the Course

This workshop uses hi-tech VEX robotic equipment to develop teamwork, communication, technical, adaptability and problem-solving skills. Students are introduced to current real-world examples of robots (e.g. Mars Curiosity Rover), before taking part in the Robot Rumble. For this teams are challenged to adapt their robot with attachments, to complete a competitive task remotely and score the most points.
