THE COMPLETE ROBOTICS EXPERIENCE

Our robotics summer camp provides an in-depth experience of what it's like to be in a Vex team: From building your very first robot to learning how to program it. The summer camp is a great way for your son or daughter to find out whether they are interested in the field of Robotics and STEM.

Bigger, and Better

This year, we're levelling up our summer camp. We had an amazing response from our first summer camp, and we're back with a New, Bigger, and Better Robot. The robot will be custom-designed by the lead builder from the fifth-best VEX Team in the world, team 210Y. 

This isn't going to be your ordinary Clawbot.

AdvanceD Expereince

This year, we want to focus our emphasis on DESIGN. Students will first have the opportunity to build and program their  robot with the guidance of world-class teachers, and then evolve their robot by designing their own unique modifications using the Western Mechatronics Club parts inventory.

Experience Tipping Point

The 2021 - 2022 Vex Robotics Competition Game, Tipping Point, is a unique game packed with ring tosses and see-saws. Robots have to score points by tossing rings into poles and by balancing mobile goals on giant tipping see-saws.  Experience the excitement of change up by building your very own Tipping Point Robot in three days.

Build At Home With Friends!

We will be providing all the parts, tools, and game elements you need to build your first robot at home! Just take our santized kits home and build! Robotics is a team experience, so we encourage you sign up with a friend or two to share the experience with! Kits are picked up in Calgary, AB.
