The Ultimate Robotics Experience

Serious about robotics? Bot Camp invites our top students to join our official VEX IQ team in a full-year elite-level competitive robotics program. Just as students join an elite-level hockey or soccer team, we coordinate teams of 4 students, ages 10-14, and provide training, mentorship, all equipment, lab access, practice time, uniforms and registration fees to compete at two official local VEX IQ tournaments. Ultimately, the goal of our teams is to qualify for the World Championships.

Commitment

A commitment of 6 hours per week is expected, with 2 hour meetings every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evening at 6:30 PM, starting May 6, 2019. Our world-class instructors are available at every meeting to train, coach and mentor team members. Students receive access to the VEX IQ parts, computers, software, and example robots in the Bot Camp robotics lab.

The fees for one full-year are $4999, and include all instruction, equipment, uniforms, lab access, and registration for 2 local events.

This program is suitable only for highly committed students with a very strong interest in robotics.

Selection Process

Students will be selected from all students who have attended Bot Camp camps or workshops. Staff will recommend students for selection based on the following attributes:

  • Commitment
  • Maturity
  • Responsibility
  • Enthusiasm
  • Character
  • Ability and willingness to learn

Selected students may not necessaily have robotics experience.

All students ages 10-14 who have attended at least one Bot Camp program (camp or workshop) will automatically be considered for selection. There is no application process.

Invitations will be extended on a rolling basis beginning in March. Parents will be notified via e-mail.
