What's VEX® Robotics?
The VEX Robotics Design System offers students an exciting platform for learning about areas rich with career opportunities spanning science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). These are just a few of the many fields students can explore by creating with VEX Robotics technology. Beyond science and engineering principles, a VEX Robotics project encourages teamwork, leadership and problem solving among groups. Complete program details can be found here.
What's the Advanced Robotics Team?
The Advanced Robotics Team will work together to create robots for specific challenges and test their designs among other teams in the area. We use the VEX IQ robotics system and will be participating in Robot Nights. These are friendly and casual meets where students from the lower mainland test and showcase their VEX IQ designs on the various challenges present at the venue. These Robot Nights are held at local Vancouver secondary schools. Visit VSB Robotics Competiton for more information. Complete program details can be found here.
What's LEGO® Mindstorms®?
The Lego Mindstorms series of kits contain software and hardware to create customizable, programmable robots. They include an intelligent brick computer that controls the system, a set of modular sensors and motors, and LEGO parts from the Technics line to create the mechanical systems. Complete program details can be found here.
Apply for a Bursary!
Thanks to support from SCWIST, the Society for Canadian Women in Science and Technology, we are able to offer bursaries to female students who could otherwise not afford to attend our club programs. Bursaries subsidize 50%-100% of the registration fees as needed. The balance of the fees must be provided by another source before we can process the registration. Due to high demand, applications will be processed in the order in which they are received. There may not be enough funds to support all requests. Children awarded a bursary will be asked to write a letter of thanks to the supporting company before the end of their camp week.
Application deadline is August 17, 2018.
