The V5 Classroom Starter Kit is a STEM robotics classroom and competition starter solution for grades 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 and beyond. The V5 is the next generation of robot control featuring a new robot brain with a 4.25" screen that is both touch screen and in color. In addition, the V5 kits includes updated powerful smart motors with built in encoders and interchangeable gear boxes, updated sensors and more options to take your STEM & coding program further. The classroom starter kit is made for classroom use and one kit works well in 2:1 student:robot ratio. The kit is scalable, which means you can add-on any components, additional motors, metal, aluminum and pneumatics to build on your program as students push their robot design further.
V5 kits are made of a combination of metal and plastic parts that are fastened with screws, nuts and bolts. There is no need for expensive tools to put together a VEX robot. They're intended to be used in any classroom, not necessarily a shop class. The V5 robot builds can be programmed or driven using the included handheld controller. The handheld controller makes VEX fun and engages students immediately.
