“Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we’re curious…and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”

―Walt Disney Company

 The VEX Robotics Design System offers students an exciting platform for learning about areas rich with career opportunities spanning science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). These are just a few of the many fields students can explore by creating with VEX Robotics technology. Beyond science and engineering principles, a VEX Robotics project encourages teamwork, leadership and problem solving among groups. It also allows educators to easily customize projects to meet the level of students’ abilities. The affordable VEX platform is expanding rapidly and is now found in middle schools, high schools and university labs around the globe. Robotics hobbyists also appreciate the advanced capabilities of the VEX System. http://www.vexrobotics.com/vex

Going beyond in-person robotics events, the Online Challenge program gives students a chance to participate in engineering competitions without traveling in subjects such as robot construction, sustainable engineering, robotics game animation, and video production. Students from all over the world have participated in past challenges, and we are proud to announce the challenges for this season.

The details for 2015 Online Challenges are now available. Mixing successful ideas from the past four years with new challenges and interesting twists, we expect that this year will generate even more student excitement than last. Here is the complete list of the 2015 challenges and links to details:

The challenges open for submissions in September, so start working!

VEX Classroom and Competition Robotics Kits are complete kits designed for use in a daytime classroom or for a team involved in a competitive robotics program. Use Autodesk’s VEX Robotics Curriculum to start teaching with VEX Robotics, from the basics of engineering, robotics and design all the way up to a semester-ending classroom competition. If you’re fielding a competitive robotics team outside the classroom, these kits include the most popular items used to design and build VEX competition robots.
