The Exciting World of Robotics (K-2 and 3-6): Have you ever wanted to design, build and program your own robot? Students will construct their own robots from the ground up, using the VEXIQ design system. The robots will then compete against each other in the VEXIQ Highrise Challenge. In the challenge, students will build and program their robots to stack high rises of colored blocks, and compete to score the most points in a designated time period. This is a STEM based curriculum where students will learn coding, building and the engineering process for basic robotic construction and design. The VEX design system is a national standard, and the standard used throughout MBUSD for STEM classes and robotics.
