VEX IQ

VEX IQ is a robotics system designed to offer young students an inclusive introduction to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). The system encourages students to work together and exercise their creativity, problem solving and leadership skills through teamwork-driven activities. Students will use the VEX IQ systems to build multiple robots and learn applications through the project-based curriculum. The expansive set allows students to explore multiple robots; students will be excited about the flexibility and personalization offered by the VEX IQ kits. Once you are done building, get ready to program, VEX IQ offers both autonomous and driver control and acts as a great stepping stone for students interested in programming!
