VEX IQ ROBOTICS

OVERVIEW

Elementary and middle school is the most formative time in a young student's life. The best way to instill a lifelong interest in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) is to provide a fun, engaging, and hands-on opportunity to explore and experience it for themselves. By its nature, the study of robotics inherently incorporates all four pillars of STEM. VEX IQ is a snap-together robotics system designed from the ground up to provide this opportunity to future engineers of all skill levels. By packaging advanced concepts into an accessible package, the system also naturally encourages teamwork, problem solving, and leadership for students as young as second grade!

VEX IQ ROBOTICS TEAM COMPETITION

The VEX IQ Challenge serves as a great introduction to competition for younger students. Each year, students solve an engineering challenge presented in the form of a game. Teams can participate in a variety of skill-based and judged events, like demonstrating a Programming Skills autonomous routine or presenting a STEM Research Project. The flagship Teamwork Challenge emphasizes the value of collaboration over combat by pairing teams together to achieve the highest combined score possible.

VEX IQ PROGRAMMING

As the world grows more technologically complex, computer science and computational thinking are becoming even more crucial fundamentals for students to learn. Since you can physically see the results of your coding exercises, robots offer a uniquely engaging format for learning these concepts.

ROBOTC is a cross-robotics-platform programming language for popular educational robotics systems. ROBOTC is a C-Based Programming Language and the premiere robotics programming language for educational robotics and competitions.
