    It's All Included

    We'll provide you with the tools, kit, parts, and instruction to build your robot. You bring your imagination!

Adventures in Vex Robotics

Learn how robots think, sense and function and then design and build one using the Vex™ Robotics Design System! Gain insight about the history of robots, how they are used now and how they will be used in the future.

Learn about engineering concepts, electronics, sensors, and control subsystems from an instructor at UofSC's College of Engineering, whose research focuses on morphology, manipulation, and stability control of Multirotor Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (MUAVs). Explore the different engineering disciplines and find out what it takes to be an engineer.

If you have an interest in robots and are wondering if engineering might be in your future, then this class is for you! Round out your adventure in a robot demonstration by competing against other robot teams.

No experience in robots is necessary.
