Raising Your IQ on VEX IQ Team Development Nancy McIntyre Robotics Education & Competition Foundation Slide 2 PLTW Information PLTW schools that are using VEX, seeking education materials and information, should consult their PLTW websites and resource people first and use the general VEX resources as a supplement. Slide 3 Education Resources for VEX IQ Platform (Elementary & Middle School) VEX IQ Curriculum http://vexiq.com/curriculumhttp://vexiq.com/curriculum Standards Mapping Details for VEX IQ Curriculum, found in Teacher Materials links within each curriculum unit, for example: http://content.vexrobotics.com/vexiq/pdf/VEX_IQ_Curriculum_MEC_TeacherU nitInfo_v2.pdf http://content.vexrobotics.com/vexiq/pdf/VEX_IQ_Curriculum_MEC_TeacherU nitInfo_v2.pdf Standards Mapping for VEX IQ Challenge 2013-14 STEM Research Project: http://www.roboticseducation.org/documents/2013/09/vex-iq-challenge- stem-research-project-standards.pdf - VEX IQ Education Videos on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLvvcc7S26YEgp60fNJwh64aj9ywiZ 79Ta - VEX IQ Education Videos to download and save: http://www.vexrobotics.com/vexiq/documents-downloads http://www.roboticseducation.org/documents/2013/09/vex-iq-challenge- stem-research-project-standards.pdf https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLvvcc7S26YEgp60fNJwh64aj9ywiZ 79Ta http://www.vexrobotics.com/vexiq/documents-downloads Slide 4 PLTW Course Standards Matching for Grades 6-12 (VEX Robotics Design System Used in Some Courses) http://alignment.pltw.org/http://alignment.pltw.org/ use the standards and objectives alignment tab PLTW Courses are mapped to NGSS, Common Core, and STL (the ITEEA standards) VEX Robotics Design System used in specific courses VEX kits for: http://www.vexrobotics.com/pltw http://www.vexrobotics.com/pltw Slide 5 Information on PLTW Launch, the new Elementary (Grades K-5) PLTW Program using VEX IQ 2013-14 is a Pilot Year 20+ Schools Are Involved 2014-15 Full Implementation - registrations are currently being taken. Latest public information is here: http://www.pltw.org/launch VEX IQ is being used in 4 th and 5 th Grade modules in this curricular program. Additional Education Materials and Resources For VEX IQ & VEX Robotics Design System can be found at our programming software and other partners websites.http://www.pltw.org/launch Slide 6 VEX EDUCATION INFORMATION & HELPFUL RESOURCES As of 11.20.2013 The VEX IQ Platform and VEX Robotics Design System are both developed to help educators meet the rigorous standards-based needs of the 21 st Century Classroom in dynamic and flexible ways. The free VEX IQ Curriculum (for elementary and middle school) and free Autodesk VEX Robotics Curriculum (for middle school and high school) are both mapped directly to: - Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) - Common Core Standards - Standards for Technological Literacy (STL) Slide 7 Developing a Team This is a wonderful way to get started and allows you to generate some excitement even before the robot is built. Team identity: Team Name Logo Team Colors Team Tag Line Jobs on the team: Develop a leadership team Drive Team Pit Team STEM experts Slide 8 Typical Jobs on the Team Designers - CAD Autodesk 123D Engineering Notebook Programmers Modkit STEM Project Specialists Scouts P R people Website Design Video production Slide 9 How a Season Works Register your team on Robotevents.com Organizing build sessions Have a plan for each day Have jobs for everyone Allow time for wrap up Allow time for clean up Allow time to write in engineering notebook Slide 10 How Often? How Many? Develop your team to fit your school, your availability, your resources Be inclusive not exclusive. Allow as many students to participate that are willing to make the commitment and willing to contribute to the team. Some will want to design Some will want to build Some will want to program Some will want to drive Some will want to work on the STEM project Some will want to be on the pit team Slide 11 Event Planning Prepping for an event Drive team practice STEM Presentation Scouting teams and robots Items to be packed Permission Forms, Robot, Charger, Controller, Kit of Parts, Power Strip, Lunch and Snacks, STEM Project, Engineering Notebook, Highlighter, Pit Decorations, Camera. Slide 12 Day of the Event Check in Pit set up Drivers meeting Team Queuing Judging Skills Challenges Alliance Selection Follow up Lessons Learned What did you learn about yourselves? What did you learn from others? Improve Design Process Have students make more entries in engineering notebook Preparing Future Events Celebration for a job well done. Enough said Slide 13 Three Robotics Challenge Options 60-second matches each Teamwork Challenge 2 team alliances collaborate to score 2 drivers Switch controller halfway Robot Skills Challenge 2 drivers Switch controller halfway 1 single robot scoring most points possible Programming Challenge Autonomous programming 1 single robot scoring points most points possible Slide 14 Sample VEX IQ Event Schedule All Challenge Matches Can Run at the Same Time Teams Check In9:00 a.m. Drivers Meeting9:30 Matches & Judging9:45-12:15 Lunch12:15-12:45 Matches Resume12:45-2:00 Alliance Announcement2:15 Finals Matches & Awards2:30-3:00 Pits Close3:30 Slide 15 Brainstorming ADD IT UP http://www.vexforum.com/wiki/index.php/Add_It_Up HOW TO SCORE IN TEAMWORK CHALLENGE HOW TO SCORE IN ROBOT SKILLS CHALLENGE HOW TO SCORE IN AUTONOMOUS CHALLENGE Slide 16 Engineering Notebook a.
