RoboJackets K12 Programs

Summer Camp 2019

RoboJackets summer day camps are an excellent opportunity for future and current team members to train and build skills, or for complete beginners to explore competitive youth robotics without a long term commitment.

  • Flexible Scheduling: Pick and choose weeks that work for you
  • Extended Time Included: Convenient drop off and pick up for younger participants, and optional bonus work time for older participants
  • Range of Programs: Options for K-12th grade, and from novice to expert in each age bracket
  • Community: Open to Avondale and out-of-district students, an opportunity to meet more students that are part of the robotics community

RoboJackets summer day camps aim to maximize the experience for each participant by ensuring ample equipment for significant hands-on time for each individual, and by enabling customization in programs. RoboJackets day camps programs are more than just kit builds in which each participant builds the same project. Camps utilize base activities that provide a starting point and allow individuals to choose their own direction.

Competition Teams

VEX IQ Teams (3rd-8th grade)

RoboJackets VEX IQ Teams will be operated in cooperation with volunteer parent coordinators.  The RoboJackets will supply all of the game and robot equipment necessary for the season.  The RoboJackets will also host weekly meetings for all the teams to get together for practice matches and design review with coaches, and where teams will have the opportunity to restock their parts bins.  The parent coordinators will schedule and host build meetings for their team.  They can also choose to assist with technical elements and/or share that responsibility with another parent, but that’s not required.

Each team will consist of 2-6 youth team members.  It’s recommended that team members be all elementary school aged or all middle school aged, though it’s not required.  If ANY of the team members are middle school aged the team must compete in the middle school division at events.  The RoboJackets will work with parent coordinators and youth participants without a team to try and accommodate all interested students.

FRC Team (8th-12th grade)

FTC Team (6th-8th grade)

The FTC team will consist of the 6th-8th grade junior members of the FRC team.  In the fall, the junior team members will participate in FTC as their project.  They will follow the same meeting schedule and participate in the same training.  While the older team members are working on their offseason projects, the junior members will work on their FTC competition robot.  During FRC season January-April, junior members will be appropriately integrated into FRC operations based on their availability, maturity, and skills.
