Develop your students STEM and employability skills and win VEX Kits

Published 20th June 2016

Want to get involved in the largest and fastest growing middle and high school robotics competition in the world?

Looking to develop your students STEM and employability skills and extend the learning and problem solving they develop in D&T?

Visit the VEX Robotics or Rapid Education stands, or attend the drop-in VEX Robotics Competition sessions and you will be entered into a prize draw to win everything you will need to do this! The fantastic prize will give a school everything they need to start an extra-curricular club for either the VEX IQ Challenge or the VEX Robotics Competition (depending on the age group). The bundle includes:

• A VEX IQ Super Kit and Competition Add-on Kit / A VEX EDR Classroom & Competition Super Kit
• An easyC/ROBOTC Programming License
• Team Registration for the 2016 – 2017 season
• An introduction and training session for the teachers to get them started

The VEX Robotics Design System comprises the VEX IQ (Key Stage 2 & 3) and VEX EDR (Key Stages 3, 4 & 5) systems which offer students an exciting platform for learning about areas rich with career opportunities spanning science, technology, engineering and maths (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 customise projects to meet the level of students’ abilities. The affordable VEX platform is expanding rapidly and is now found in primary and secondary schools and university labs across the UK and around the globe. The 2016 VEX World Championships set a Guinness World Record for the words largest robotics competition… could be there in 2017!
