The Vex Challenge is presented by the Robotics Education & Competition Foundation and is a brand new STEM program for elementary and middle school age students. Students are guided by their teachers and mentors to build a robot using the VEX robotics platform that solves an engineering challenge presented in the form of a game. Their robot’s skills are put on display as they individually control the driver. Not only do the students build robots, but they are also encouraged to learn about technology, science, engineering and mathematics through a STEM themed research project that consists of a written or media presentation.
Team 13376 took home the award for best Robot Design at the FLL 2nd Chance Qualifier in Grand Saline. Team 13377A won 1st Place for Programming Skills at the VEX North Texas Bank Shot in Richardson.
