Description

This course is intended for beginner robot coders or others transferring from RobotC (or ModKit).
If you’re an experienced programmer looking for tougher challenges – This is not for you – I am in the process of making intermediate level courses and after that I’ll get to the professional level and engineering courses.
VEXcode looks and works like SCRATCH, so if you’re familiar with Scratch, you’ll quickly learn the basics of programming your VEX IQ robot. This course covers all the sensors, including the new Vision Sensor, as well as the remote control – at the end of this course you’ll be able to confidently program your robot to do some neat tricks.
