Join Penguin Robotics for their first workshop of the VEX 2017/2018 season!
RobotC is now free with kits, lets learn how to use it :)
This hands-on workshop will be oriented towards beginner programmers that wish to learn how to write RobotC code for VEX In The Zone.
Having a robot is not necessary, we encourage teams who only have a cortex, sensors and motors to bring those along!
Want to beat your opponents in autonomous?
Watch for the next Penguin Robotics autonomous programming workshop where you can get autonomous programming coaching from VEX world champions.
To learn more about Penguin Robotics and see the presentations from previous workshops, head to Penguin Robotics website.
What is it?
A chance for educators to experience the VEX Robotics System in a “hands on” environment and learn first hand how BC teachers are using robotics to inspire their students.
What will I learn?
You will learn how to build and program a VEX Robot to operate both in both teleoperated and autonomous modes. You will learn tips and techniques for presenting this material to your students.
Why does it matter?
Robotics is a new way
Who are those Penguins and what are the doing here?
Penguin Robotics is a recently formed student-run robotics society that is making a powerful contribution to the competitive robotics community in BC.
