VEX VRC CAMP: CHange-up

Take your robotics education and experience to the next level with Western Mechatronic’s Advanced VEX VRC Robotics Summer Camp. Design and build a robot for a mystery game that will be revealed at the beginning of the camp, and compete against other teams. Played on a 12x12-foot arena, this game will be played as a 2v2. Teams are tasked to design, build, program, and drive their robots with VEX VRC Robotics parts and tools. 

Learn essential design practices, building proficiencies, and programming fundamentals.
