Experience the Vex IQ during Robotics Summer Camp! Students will spend the week building and programming robots, and experience additional arts activities as we transition from STEM-based learning to STEAM-based learning. There will be field trip options allowing students to understand the real world applications of STEM! 
Advanced curricula is available for returning students. 

At IRIS, we provide students with educational STEM-based (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) learning programs using LEGO Robotics technology!   The camp structure will provide students with the time and resources required to work with their peers, create complex designs and participate in challenges and activities. Students will explore STEM topics beyond the classroom, create real world applications and discover the countless career opportunities in related fields.

VEX IQ
VEX IQ is a robotics system designed to offer young students an inclusive introduction to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). The system encourages students to work together and exercise their creativity, problem solving and leadership skills through teamwork-driven activities. Students will use the VEX IQ systems to build multiple robots and learn applications through the project-based curriculum. The expansive set allows students to explore multiple robots; students will be excited about the flexibility and personalization offered by the VEX IQ kits. Once you are done building, get ready to program, VEX IQ offers both autonomous and driver control and acts as a great stepping stone for students interested in programming!
