Robotics is taught as part of our Computer Science Course, which introduces students to the field of computer science, the fundamentals of computer programming, and robotics. The course will cover basic object-oriented programming using Java: a high-level, portable, and well-constructed computer programming language. Computer science builds logical problem-solving skills, collaboration, and an understanding of the ever-changing technological world. Computer science also encompasses more than just programming, therefore students will have multiple opportunities to explore hardware, software, and networks through robotics. VEX IQ robotics will build collaboration, communication, critical thinking, and creativity by building teams of students to with design and build a robot to compete with other teams in a game-based engineering challenge. Juniors and Seniors receive priority enrolling.
