This course gives you a basic understanding of Robotics and with the VEX CS Level 1 Course, your student will begin their journey into learning Computer Science. They will use VEXcode VR and engaging robotics-based activities to learn about project flow, loops, conditionals, algorithms, and more.
This introductory course encourages students to use VEXcode VR to learn and practice computational thinking and coding. Each lesson and unit walks the students through a particular Computer Science concept, leading your student to complete independent challenges applying what they have learned.
Because VEXcode VR is 100% web-based, your student can use any of the major web browsers on a computer or tablet-based device. Using the VEXcode VR coding system, students can get started instantly with their coding journey!
Students will also learn about and possibly comete VEX Competitions.
