SCSC VEX IQ Training, Grades 3-8

Join us at South Central Service Cooperative for an exciting two-day professional development opportunity and learn all about VEX IQ robotics curriculum and competition opportunities. VEX IQ is a great way to incorporate coding into the classroom or in an afterschool program. By its nature, the study of robotics inherently incorporates all four pillars of STEM. VEX IQ is a snap-together robotics system designed from the ground up to provide this opportunity to future engineers of all skill levels. By packaging advanced concepts into an accessible package, the system also naturally encourages teamwork, problem solving, and leadership for students. VEX has a developed curriculum with 12 standards-mapped units includes hands-on activities, instructions, assessments, and rubrics for students. This two-day training will not only prepare the teacher to teach coding and robotics, but participants will also leave with the knowledge of how to build and prepare a VEX IQ competition team. Participants will receive full access to online curriculum, a VEX IQ super kit, and two days of instruction with Michelle Johnson, Director of the STEM Center at Henderson State University and Katie Curry, K-12 Science Specialist at the STEM Center at Henderson State University. Participants will also benefit from follow-up support provided by Jo Ann Womack, Technology Coordinator at South Central Service Cooperative, plus the K-12 Content Specialists from South Central Service Cooperative.
Important Session Information:

NOTE: Each participant should bring a laptop for this training. Software will be uploaded to the laptop for programming the robot. Members of the SCSC Math/Science/Technology Consortium will receive these two days of training plus on-line access to the VEX IQ curriculum plus a VEX IQ Robot at no extra cost. Instructional Technology Integrationist class members will have access to available training slots first, then the training will be opened up to others. For non-consortium participants, there will be a $375 fee. Contact Faye Davis at (870) 836-1633 or email her to register at faye.davis@scscoop.org
