Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Robotics program at Archbishop Jordan High has been turning out regional and provincial champions at the VEX Robotics competitions for the past 5 years with students at the Grade 11/12 levels. This year, we have made the decision to start the VEX program at the Grade 9 and 10 levels for the first time, forgoing the LEGO NXT system. This session will introduce the VEX Robotics system and why we at ABJ decided that it is a better system for students at the high school level to learn and master. However, the challenge for both teachers and students alike is the implementation of the C++ programming language. So likewise, I will demonstrate how we can best prepare to learn and apply this language in the robotics environment.
