The VEX IQ Super Kit, by VEX Robotics, is a K-8 STEM robotics classroom and competition solution. The kits are best suited for grades 4 - 8, although it is proven to drive interest in STEM and coding in learners as early as grade 1.   VEX IQ parts are made primarily of plastic and they snap together to build robots that can be programmed or driven using the included handheld controller.  The handheld (xbox like) controller removes barriers to entry into robotics since students can drive their creations as soon as they finish building their robots.

Features:

  • Over 800 Structural & Motion Components
  • 4 Smart Motors, 7 Sensors (bumper x2, gyro, distance, color, 2x touch LED), Robot Brain, Controller & Batteries Included
  • Storage Bin & Tray included for organized storage of all parts
  • Seem-less integration with VEX Robotics V5 at high school level. Students can continue to build on the skills they learn in K-8 as they progress into high school robotics.
  • FREE Online Curriculum included
  • FREE Build Instructions to help you get started with building your robot creations.
  • FREE Coding software (Blocks and Text) WIN, MAC, Chromebooks (MSI for IT deployment also available).
  • Ability to enter competitions at your school, school district, or community.  Call 1-877-730-4770 for details.

Drive the Interest in STEM Careers with the Experience and thrill of Robotics Competition

Take your robotics program further by participating at VEX IQ competitions through the Robotics Education Competition Foundation (RECF) program. Each spring RECF introduce an engineering challenge in the form of a game.  Students then put classroom concepts to the test and take learning into their own hands as they build robots to compete at local competitions hosted by Event Partners (Event Partners are community organizers that host local robotics competition with the assistance of RECF software and web portal). You can find local events by visiting the RECF hosted robotics competition portal www.robotevents.com.  There are hundreds of competition events held annually each year. Teams compete on a weekly basis from the fall to spring, with the goal to reach state, provincial championship events with the ultimate goal of qualifying to VEX Worlds, which is hosted by RECF and VEX Robotics each April.

The VEX IQ kits provide students with real world challenges and fun competition.  The program is an inclusive environment and proven to increase student engagement and  develop soft skills such as teamwork, leadership, communications, and collaboration.
