**QUICK NOTE** Friday's session (6/30) has been moved to Thursday (7/6) and Monday's session (7/3) has been moved to next Monday (7/10). For more information, refer to the email sent out to all parents earlier today. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. The situation was out of our control and we couldn't have held a session for the students in hazardous conditions.

Week 3 Update

Hello Parents and Students,

We are now through week 3 of the summer camp! Since the last update, students finished the maze challenge (which incorporated building, programming, and driver control skills), which had some really innovative programs - check those out in the google photos album. Throughout the lessons, students learned about lifts (i.e. scissor lifts, linkages such as 4-bars and 6-bars, chain bars, etc.) and got more tips for approaching the design process. We introduced the final VEX IQ Official Ringmaster challenge as well, and students began iterating a preliminary design to build and test.

Families are invited for our final summer camp mini-challenge tournament: Ringmaster. It will take place on 7/10 (Monday) from 8 am to 12 pm right outside the 4000 building (there will be an elevated field for teams to compete on in the mini quad. If possible, please wear your DVHS Robotics Summer Camp t-shirt that was distributed on the 1st session, as we would love it if all of you can show some camp spirit on the last day!

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me at or and submit feedback here.
