Students will learn to program with icons in an age-appropriate programming environment that is ideal for simply addressing the logic of programming .

As robotics is the allied discipline of programming in the development of most objects of everyday life, an introduction to robotics is also proposed. This discipline seemed to us to be essential for students to have a concrete idea of ​​the areas of application of programming. The 3 programming manuals are complemented by 3 manuals dedicated to robotics to discover 3 basic mechanisms: wheels, gears and camshafts.

VEX’s integrated system of components means that students can focus on questions like “what happens if we change this arm?” instead of “why doesn’t this piece fit?”

By utilizing feedback from the students and teachers that use VEX every day, we embrace the value of “continuous improvement” and have developed a system truly driven by its users.

Beginners can get an immediate sense of accomplishment by building basic driveable robots in just a few hours.

VEX EDR robots are driven (literally) by cutting-edge technology adapted by our experts specifically for education. The VEX ARM® Cortex®-based Microcontroller acts as the robot “brain”, allowing for both autonomous and driver control of robots. VEX EDR robots can also bring code to life when programmed using a software solution like ROBOTC (included in ALL VEX kits). This microcontroller also includes VEXnet wireless communication, enabling remote control using up to two VEXnet Joysticks.

Info for teachers:

Hands-on curriculum options from Robomatter and Project Lead the Way (PLTW) give educators the tools that they need to help students develop problem-solving skills and learn programming fundamentals.

The FREE project-based VEX EDR Curriculum teaches the engineering design process in a hands-on manner that helps teachers to challenge, motivate, and inspire their students. The process of building a robot naturally incorporates many STEM lessons and applications, lessons that students will begin to automatically apply as they advance through the program.

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.
