Students will build and program a robot with guidance from WHS Robotics team members using the VEX IQ platform with advanced programming and building techniques, which is used by thousands of robotics programs across the world to teach engineering principles. This “teleoperated” robot will then be used in a variety of challenges and competitions, which will allow students to experience first-hand the thrill of competitive robotics while learning STEM principles. Teams will close out the week in a tournament against each other to crown a Crossover Challenge champion. Students will solder and build digital dice to take home. WHS Robotics camps are under the supervision of Coach Norman Morgan.

Created by the award-winning Westlake High School Robotics Team and Chap Research, the "Chap-duino" is an Arduino-based robot kit designed to give 3rd-5th graders a hands-on experience with real robot hardware and electronics that they can take home. Students will assemble the robot and program it using the MIT Scratch programming system and Bluetooth 4.0 (BLE). Students will compete in the Chap-duino camp olympics where they participate in autonomous and remote-control challenges. There is a $50 materials cost for this class.
