2. Please fill out this survey. Survey

If you have not attended one of our workshop before, we advise you to classify yourself as a beginner.



Need help with RobotC? VEX Coding Studio? No problem!

This workshop is aimed towards beginner programmers who are interested in learning how to program their robot using the VEX V5 or EDR system with RobotC and VCS C++ for VEX Turning Point. However, students ranging from all levels of experience in programming are welcome and we will adjust our content accordingly. We strongly encourage all students, who show a passion for VEX Robotics to attend!

Throughout the workshop, the Penguin Robotics members will gradually explain and cover the fundamentals of RobotC and VCS C++, which include the following:

• C syntax basics
• Basic Driver Control
• Coding a Tank Drive
• Coding a basic autonomous

At the end of the workshop, you will have learnt to construct modular robot code for driver control and a basic autonomous.

If there is enough demand, we will also be offering an advanced group who will learn how to improve their autonomous routines using basic closed loop feedback control.


What do students need to bring?


1. Please bring a filled in consent form! Refer to the ticket URL to download the form. We will not be allowing day of registrations so please get tickets.

2. Please fill out the survey! Refer to the ticket URL to fill out the survey.


• Personal Laptop & Charger
• VEX Cortex/V5 Brain
• VEX 393 or EDR Motors
• VEX Sensors
• Simple robot with wheels and an arm

Since it is early in the season, only having a cortex, motors and sensors will do. However, the best way to learn is to have an assembled robot at the workshop


It will be facilitated by a successful team, known as Penguin Robotics, who are highly experienced in the filed of VEX Robotics and have participated in the past VEX Robotics World Championships.
