The ROBOTC VEX PIC Curriculum is no longer for sale.

Teaching ROBOTC for IFI VEX is an essential tool to teach ROBOTC to both beginning and advanced programmers.

 

Teachers will find a robust curriculum with content for the full range of ROBOTC programming activities. Multi-media lessons cover the fundamentals of ROBOTC programming through the more complex robot behaviors using the touch and ultrasonic sensors. Many examples of commented code are provided to reinforce  ROBOTC programming concepts such as loops, thresholds and timers.  

 

Many challenges are included to build friendly competition into the learning process! Teachers will find classroom-ready quizzes an important teaching tool to test students’ comprehension.

The curriculum starts with a basic VEX design called Squarebot 2.0. Lessons that cover sensors and a mechanical arm require additional parts to be added, creating Squarebot 3.0. Building instructions for both models are included.

Take advantage of over 300 pages of printed lessons (listed below) that you can use in your classroom or for self-paced individual training. These documents support the videos that are included in the Teaching ROBOTC for IFI VEX.
