Introduction to Competitive Robotics is a streamlined curriculum that brings the dynamic educational value of robotic competitions to more VEX teams, as well as high school and middle school classrooms.

Introduction to Competitive Robotics consists of fourteen hands-on activities enhanced by interactive media, videos and simulations. The curriculum can be hosted and delivered via, intelitek’s e-learning management system, or installed on a local computer or network.

Through step-by-step activities covering robot assembly and programming, teams learn to build and program a competitive robot for both autonomous and operator control. Activities enable teams to quickly understand and apply the concepts many teams struggle with, like encoders, ultrasonic, line followers and PID control.

Introduction to Competitive Robotics includes
step by step instructions delivered in an accessible self-paced online format.
interactive simulations and animations of assembly and programming procedures.
links to launch easyC® software* directly
from the content.

Introduction to Competitive Robotics brings the benefits of the VEX Cortex microcontroller and easyC® for Cortex robotic programming software to help more students become exposed to robotics, competitions and engineering!

Featuring the VEX Cortex Microcontroller

The VEX Cortex Microcontroller coordinates the flow of all information and power on the robot. It has built in bi-directional communication for wireless driving, debugging and downloading using the state of the art VEXnet 802.11 wireless link. The Microcontroller is the brain of every VEX robot.

* requires easyC® for Cortex software, sold separately.
