VEX Robotics

VEX Robotics combines hands-on STEM learning and critical life skills in a competition setting awaits students in this program. Beyond science and engineering principles, VEX encourages creativity, teamwork, leadership, and problem solving among groups. 

Robotics highlights the many ways in which technology impacts daily life in the 21st century.

  • Students build, code, and manipulate their own technological designs to apply innovative ideas that improve existing processes. Robots are tangible examples of how technology is used to meet the needs of its users and the needs of society.
  • Robotics allows students to practice the engineering design process. They learn to work within constraints, identify multiple solutions to problems, and find the best possible solution through iteration. Students hone valuable skills with problem-solving, troubleshooting, research and development, invention and innovation.
  • Teams must document each change they make to the machine throughout the season. 

Cabarrus County Schools have 100+ teams competing in this year's program.
