Computer Science + Robotics
Educational robotics serves Computer Science education in many ways. First, robots are fun. No matter the subject, teachers are always looking for ways to engage and motivate their students. Also, the everyday relevance of robots in the lives of students provides a natural and authentic hook for student learning. The process of developing coding solutions with a robot provides a relevant context for engaging students in Computer Science. The VEX Computer Science curriculum continuum will provide students with a fun and engaging way to learn authentic applications to Computer Science concepts.
VEXcode VR Activities
Activities offer simple engagements designed for independent student use. Each Activity contain multiple levels and coding tips, making differentiation a breeze.
CS Level 1 - VEXcode VR Blocks
Begin the journey into learning Computer Science with the VEXcode VR Computer Science Level 1 - Blocks course! Using VEXcode VR and engaging robotics-based activities, students will learn about project flow, loops, conditionals, algorithms.
CS Level 1 - VEXcode VR Python
Continue on your Computer Science journey with text-based coding in VEXcode VR Python! Using a VR Robot to solve various coding challenges, students will learn about project flow, loops, conditions, and algorithms in Python.
Participate in the
Hour of Code
Engage students in fun computer science activities with immersive VEXcode VR playgrounds or VEX robots. Get novice coders excited about CS, and help advanced coders take their learning even further.
