What is VEX IQ robotics?

VexIQ is a robotics learning system combined with a global competition.

It is designed to make robotics accessible for younger children – ages 7/8 and older. Kids blossom through participating in this exciting competition, outside of school.

VexIQ instills STEM principles and critical thinking, but also fosters countless life skills: problem solving, resilience, self-confidence, teamwork.

“A robotics platform designed to transform the STEM learning paradigm for young students and their teachers (grades 4-8). When students have the ability to jump right in and snap robots together using this intuitive tool-less system, it can unlock a curiosity and a passion that will stay with them for life.”
