Vex IQ robot C or graphical robot C

Hi there,
We started programming in Graphical Robot C but then found code useful to our omni wheels in Robot C.

Is Graphical a much watered down version of Robot C?

We would prefer to use the normal Robot C but is it allowed for elementary students. They actually prefer it at this stage having started off and gained a grasp with the graphical?

Many thanks in anticipation. Máire

You can do “plain” Robot C with elementary students, there isn’t any rule against it. It’s what I use with my roboteers. I have an advantage since my coders came from “Code Club” so I wasn’t starting from ground zero.
