Description

Class Experience

Students will learn basic block-based coding and will learn how to troubleshoot and solve problems with their code.  They will also learn about the physical parts of the VEX IQ robots, including sensors, and how to transfer the code from the computer to the robot.
I am a Certified Robotics Instructor (VEX Robotics). I have taught VEX robotics programming since 2013 to students in public and private school settings and online since 2018.

No homework, but students will be encourage to build on what they learn in class or share projects they are doing on their own.
Students should have a VEX IQ robot (alternatively I will accept VEX EDR/Cortex or VEX V5). VEXcode IQ software is required. This software runs on a variety of devices. Please check system requirements. Students will need the USB cable that comes with the kit to download programs from computer to robot. If you only have a tablet and wireless connectivity, I will attempt to support that, but you must have the Bluetooth radio option in the robot. Download free software from: https://www.vexrobotics.com/vexcode-download
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Learner assessment is real-time and informal.  More formal assessment or grades are available to parents upon request.
3 hours 40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
VEX Robotics software and learning resources.  I am a certified VEX Robotics instructor.
