Description

Whether you are a teacher interested in finding out what's involved or already have kit but haven't yet got stuck in, this session will give an overview of the VEX Robotics platform, along with general discussion, technical support and open Q&A opportunity. If you have kit you want to bring to the session to get questions answered - this is fine. Experts from VEX Robotics will be leading the session and there to answer any questions you have.

Ideal for Design & Technology, Engineering and Computer Science teachers, technicians, or anyone involved within STEM provision in schools, this short session will demystify how robotics can positively impact students.

VEX Robotics is the leading platform for educational robotics around the world. With the tool-less, plastic VEX IQ platform for Key Stages 2 & 3 and the metal VEX EDR system for Key Stages 3, 4 and 5, it is perfectly placed to allow students to grow and develop in an open-ended, problem-solving and engaging way.

The free programming software, ranging from Modkit, our simple drag and drop format through to the more advanced ROBOTC, based on C++ language makes VEX accessible to all. The free curriculum across Design & Technology, Engineering and Computer Science means the kits can be used in the classroom and as part of the extracurricular VEX Robotics competitions. These are the largest and fastest growing robotics competitions in the world with events held each year in over 40 countries. Involvement in the competition develops key skills in competitors including teamwork, time management, perseverance – all of which are valued by employers.
