Tech Trek provides students with opportunities to create and apply knowledge of STEM topics in a group setting. Students will work with Tetrix kits which integrate electrical, programming, and mechanical concepts. Enthusiastic members from high school and collegiate level robotics teams will guide students as they navigate through engineering challenges. Tech Trek builds a concrete foundation of robotics concepts, which will especially benefit those looking into joining a FIRST Tech Challenge team. You can sign up for all three weeks at a discounted price or you can pick and choose your individual week. Each week will have a different program focus. June 17-20: Hungry Hungry Robots; July 15-18: Tetrix Combat Robotics; August 5-8: COR’s REV Robotics Challenge Game Descriptions: Hungry Hungry Robots: Teams build a remote control robot designed to score the most game elements in their goals in the available time. 2-4 robots compete on a 9′ X 9′ field and compete to see who can score the most points. Tetrix Combat Robotics: Students build remote control robots to try to push each other out of a 9′ X 9′ playing area or otherwise disabling their opponents. COR’s REV Robotics Challenge: Students use REV Robotics’ popular FIRST Tech Challenge building platform to build robots that launch, lift and score tennis balls in a fast paced sports-themed game. All games end with a competitive tournament among all the participating teams. Students work in teams of 2-4 to build their robots for all of the games.
