Lego Building Camp
June 27 – July 1
Great beginner and devotee camp. Learn to build while having fun. Half-day option for younger kids.
Vex IQ Robot Building
July 11 – July 15
VEX IQ features a powerful programmable controller, and a wide range of motors and sensors designed to transform STEM learning for the youngest future engineers. Students can jump right in and snap robots together using this intuitive, toolless platform that enables quick builds and easy modifications. As with all BIG BRAINS Robotics Camps, the IQ campers will culminate their summer camp experience with a competitive challenge designed to assess their robots capabilities.
VEX Robot Building
July 11 – July 15
The VEX EDR system is the basis for the fastest growing competitive robotics league in the world. The system allows students to build larger more powerful robots than with either VEX IQ or Lego NXT robotic kits. Well suited for students who have shown an interest in using their hands and tools to assemble things, this camp allows students to explore many types of fasteners, structural components, gears, wheel options and other robust options.
Building ‘bots grabs attention but without great programming nothing happens. In this camp we’ll use simple ‘bot designs to allow us to focus on programming our creations most powerfully. Program flow, using sensors and interacting with the environment successfully are our focusses. Our task-based environment will challenge your skills and allow you to grow!
Are you ready for a competitive design challenge? Can you build an effective climbing robot that can carry “satellites” 20 feet into the air to launch them into “orbit” and then reload and do it again? Then this is your camp! Build, test and revise and then on the last day of camp be ready to run your robots in a real competition in front of your friends and family against teams from all over Puget Sound!
Competition Team Jump Start
Prototype solutions for the VEX/VEX IQ competition challenges for the 2016-17 season. Whether you want to continue with WASABI Robotics in the fall and compete in the State VEX and VEX IQ competitions or not, you will be well started!
