At the heart of every robot is the VEX IQ Robot Brain, featuring a backlit LCD screen and 12 Smart Ports (configurable as either motors or sensors) for additional versatility in robot design. In the hands of every student is the VEX IQ Controller, a familiar and intuitive “video game”-style interface.
All electronics come with pre-installed Driver Control code, which means that students can drive their creations as soon as they’re built! This immediate feedback gives beginners an opportunity to get excited about their creation before diving into programming.

Info for teachers:
From a young child just beginning to show interest in robotics to a veteran teacher implementing a school-wide club, VEX’s kit and bundle options fit a variety of needs.
Each kit includes graphical step-by-step build instructions to help students build their first robot. All kits are also structured around the VEX IQ Curriculum to ensure seamless integration into a STEM classroom.
VEX IQ serves as a great springboard into the VEX EDR platform as students grow older. The build fundamentals and programming styles apply to both programs, so lessons introduced while participating in VEX IQ continue to be relevant in VEX EDR and beyond.
Besides hands-on engineering expertise, a competitive environment instinctively instills other life skills like teamwork, perseverance, communication, collaboration, project management, and critical thinking.
