In the VEX Robotics Competition, presented by the Robotics Education & Competition Foundation, teams of students are tasked with designing and building a robot to play against other teams in a game-based engineering challenge. Classroom STEM concepts are put to the test as students learn lifelong skills in teamwork, leadership, communications, and more. Tournaments are held year-round at the regional, state, and national levels and culminate at the VEX Robotics World Championship each April! The Robotics Education & Competition (REC) Foundation seeks to increase student interest and involvement in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) by engaging students in hands-on sustainable and affordable curriculum-based robotics engineering programs across the U.S. and internationally.
STEAM Bot Workshop is proud to have six VEX Competition Teams!
VEX IQ is a snap-together robotics system designed from the ground up to provide this opportunity to future engineers of all skill levels. VEX IQ are for students in Elementary / primary to middle / secondary school. Each team builds their own robot and competes against time with an alliance team to gain as many points possible.
There are three VEX IQ Competition Teams:
- Serial Bots
- TNT Bots
- Motor Bots
VEX EDR is a metal (aluminum or steel) robotics system that uses VEX V5. The VEX V5 platform was designed from the ground up to encourage creativity in problem solving. VEX EDR is for middle school and high school students. Each team build their own robot to compete as two alliances of two teams against each other.
There are three VEX EDR Competition Teams:
- Iron Bots
- Garage Bots
- Village Bots
