Robotics combines coding with engineering. It encourages students to look critically at machines, cars and other technology around us in terms of levers, motors, sensors and electronic brains. Our VEX IQ series is designed to engage students in hands on STEM instruction. We prioritize build time and test time in order to maximize learning through application. The VEX IQ robot brain can take up to 12 inputs/outputs, which students configure in open source software. This intuitive software is a variation of a visual coding blocks, Scratch-like approach. Our powerful classroom kits come with smart motors, LED sensors, bumper switches, distance sensors, gyro sensors and color sensors. Our goal in this series is to introduce students to competition builds. Students learn applied programing in a fun environment of collaboration and team competition. They will build VEX IQ bots that lift and stack, follow sensor input and compete against other teams’ builds.
