2018 Summer Camps

Wawasee Schools is pleased to announce their summer robotics camps for grades 7-12.  Three camps will be offered: Introduction to VEX Robotics and VEX Robotics Competition Camp.  All camps are from 8:00am to 12:00pm at Wawasee High School in Room A205.

The Introduction to VEX Robotics Camp ($100) will take place  July 2nd, 3rd, 5th, and 6th.   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. Campers 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 great way to gain experience before participation in the WHS Robotics Club.

The VEX Robotics Competition Camp ($50 per week) is 4 weeks long:  July 2nd, 3rd, 5th, and 6th,    July 9th – 13th ,  July 16th – 20th, and July 23rd – 27th.   This is for campers with all levels of experience with robotics. Campers will spend 4 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 2018-2019 competition season, Turning Point. Robotic systems designed will include chassis, intakes, lift systems, and manipulators.

 The VEX Robotics Coding Camp ($75 per week) will take place  July 30th – Aug.3rd. It is for campers with all levels of experience with robotics. Campers will spend time studying and applying concepts in computer programming as it applies to VEX Robotics including basic commands, programming logic, program flow and the use of sensors. Programs will be geared towards autonomous challenges for the VEX Robotics Turning Point Challenge for the 2018-19 competition season.
