Introduction to Programming provides a structured sequence of programming activities in real-world project-based contexts. The projects are designed to get students thinking about the patterns and structure of not just robotics, but also programming and problem-solving more generally. This curriculum includes videos, animations, and step-by-step lessons designed to help beginners learn behavior-based programming using the VEX IQ hardware and ROBOTC Graphical programming software.

VEX IQ Search & Rescue

The Search & Rescue Project is an opportunity to apply programming skills in robot movement, sensing, and decision making with a longer, multi-part challenge.

VEX IQ Program Flow II

In the Program Flow II, the user is introduced to commonly-used techniques in robotics programming that makes use of conditional statements (If, If-else), inside looping statements (while) to create rapid decision-making loops that behave as if the robot is “continuously” making decisions. Complete all requirements and earn the “VEX IQ - Program Flow II” Badge.
