The robotics platform and an introduction to building and programming is covered. Currently, FVR summer programs use the EV3. Students in groups of two choose a robot design to build from instructions.
Programming topics covered may include:
- Sensors (color, touch, ultrasonic, gyro)
- Wait blocks
Activities involve programming the robot to complete a robot game for the first part of the workshop. Once the game is complete, the summer fields are brought out and explained. Teams then work to solve the missions on the summer field in order of difficulty.
Workshop material covered may change between summers.
