The VEX robotics program fosters student development of the teamwork, critical thinking, project management, and communication skills required to prepare them to become the next generation of innovators and problem solvers. The students use VEX IQ products and STEM concepts to design, build, and program a robot, then strategize to solve an engineering challenge presented in the form of a game. At the competitions, VEX IQ Challenge teams work together scoring points in teamwork matches, and also compete individually in robot skills challenges. In addition to building robots, the students will work on a STEM themed research project that consists of a written or media presentation.
