The VEX Robotics Design System offers students an exciting platform for learning about areas rich with career opportunities spanning science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). These are just a few of the many fields students can explore by creating with VEX Robotics technology. Beyond science and engineering principles, a VEX Robotics project encourages teamwork, leadership and problem solving among groups. It also allows educators to easily customize projects to meet the level of students’ abilities. The affordable VEX platform is expanding rapidly and is now found in middle schools, high schools and university labs around the globe. Robotics hobbyists also appreciate the advanced capabilities of the VEX System.
As VEX expands in both the classroom and number competitions, there has been a lot of cross over - teams competing see the educational value and have moved VEX from an extracurricular activity into the classroom, and, likewise, teachers are finding that students enjoy competing. So, with the classroom competition field, VEX brought the best of both worlds together. Students have fun while learning, competing and innovating by continually improving their robots to be competitive.
