In China, there’s a week dedicated to science and our China ROBOTC team was there to participate in the big event! “Science Week” is an annual nationwide event where students are encouraged to attend their area science and technology center to feel and see the latest development and innovation of the technical world.
“Beijing Science Week” is the largest exhibition in China. By winning the 2015 VEX World Champion title in VEX IQ programing challenge, China ROBOTC team was the only robotic educational institution invited to showcase the VEX IQ robot and Maker idea with the powerful ROBOTC programming software.
As honorable guest of the event, Professor Kim Hyatt and Labash from CMU visited China ROBOTC booth and joined the award ceremony of Beijing Science Week in China.
At the closing event, China ROBOTC VEX IQ was awarded with the most popular demo by the crowd and Terry Sy, director of China ROBOTC, was awarded with Science Week Event Ambassador. Congrats to everyone involved!

We LOVE getting Twitter posts sent to us about ROBOTC. In the last few months, you have shared even more great posts and pictures with us. We decided to make a THIRD compilation of some of our favorites so you can check out some of the cool projects going on …
We are proud to announce the return of our Robotics Summer of Learning program! This summer, students have the opportunity to learn how to program robots, earn a programming certificate and badges, and play with cool software for FREE! We will provide all of the software and training materials at no cost to you or your students. The course will consist of three modules: movement, sensing, and program flow and will be taught using the Robot Virtual World software.
The Robotics Summer of Learning starts June 15th, register here and we’ll send you a reminder when it opens up!
