Please join us for camp at the airport! Not only will we be learning and experimenting with the physics of flight, we will have the opportunity to go up in the air. All campers will be able to participate in a scenic flight as a part of camp.
We are excited for summer! Although the new game has yet to be revealed, we are ready for new sessions of robotics camp. In addition, we have added a programming camp for those who want to focus on autonomous motion.
Look at our new engineering camps. We have camps in mechanical, electrical, and aerospace engineering. Reserve your space now as camp will fill up quickly.
Some of our campers will participate in the High Rise Challenge!
VEX Highrise Game Details
VEX IQ Challenge Highrise is played on a 4’x8’ rectangular field configured as seen above. Two robots work collaboratively, as an alliance, to score points in Teamwork Challenge matches of 60 seconds in length. Teams can also participate in two additional challenges; The Robot Skills Challenge, where one robot takes the field to score as many points as possible under driver control; and The Programming Skills Challenge, where one robot scores as many points as possible autonomously, without any driver inputs.
The object of the game is to attain the highest possible score by Scoring Cubes in the Scoring Zone and by building Highrises of Cubes of the same color on the Highrise Bases.
There are a total of thirty-six (36) Cubes, twelve (12) of each color, available as Scoring Objects in the game. There is one (1) Scoring Zone and three (3) Highrise Bases on the field. Each Robot (smaller than 13”x19”x15” to start) begins a match on one of two Starting Positions.
Each Cube Scored in the Scoring Zone is worth a point value equal to the Highrise Height of the same color as the Cube. That is, if a team builds a Highrise of 3 red Scoring Cubes on the Highrise Base, a red cube in the Scoring Zone is worth 3 points.
VEX IQ CHALLENGE BANK SHOT
Bank Shot is played on a 4’x8’ rectangular field.
Two robots compete in the Teamwork Challenge as an alliance in 60 second long teamwork matches, working collaboratively to score points. Teams also compete in two additional challenges; The Robot Skills Challenge where one robot takes the field to score as many points as possible under driver control; The Programming Skills Challenge where one robot scores as many points as possible autonomously, without any driver inputs.
Registration for camp is now open. It is exciting to see the number of youth interested in working with robots. At camp, we will be learning about basic physics by studying simple machines and identifying ways that we can incorporate these concepts into our robot designs. After designing and building our robots we will learn how to write programs so that the robots will perform the way that we want them to. We will work on mini-challenges as we work up to our final mission at the end of camp. If you have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
