What is the VEX Go Robotics System?

The VEX Go Robotics system is a complete erector style robotics kit made of specialized pieces, sensors, motors, and a specialized CPU for students to learn about building and coding robotics.

Do I need to bring a VEX Go Kit?

No, NISD will provide VEX Go kits for students to use at camp.

Does get my child get to keep the VEX Go kit?

Unfortunately, the VEX Go kits are for classroom use only. 

Does my child need to have any programming or robotics experience to enroll in this robotics engineering camp?

No, this camp curriculum is designed for students from beginner level to advanced level. Students with no experience will be given an introduction into both robotics & programming.

Is a snack or lunch provided at NISD TechnoCamps?

No.  VEX Go is an all day camp.  Please bring enough food for 2 snacks/drinks breaks and a bagged lunch.

What will my child learn in this VEX Go summer camp?

Students will learn to build, design, and program their robots through a variety of challenges. Students will learn to include sensors, motors, and gears, and complex mechanisms into their designs to complete multiple robotics engineering challenges. Students will also learn the engineering iterative process to completing a new challenge. This camp is also good practice for students looking to participate in campus robotics clubs.  .

My child is not within the age range of this camp. Is this camp appropriate for my child?

The age ranges provided are for informational and guidance purpose only. We feel that parents are the ultimate judge of where their child will comfortable. If parents are uncertain, we encourage parents to call us for appropriate recommendations on placement of their kids.
