VEX IQ Challenge (Ages 10-14)

VEX IQ is an excellent platform for middle school students to learn about robotics and engineering. It offers hands-on learning opportunities and promotes problem-solving skills and collaboration.

Each year, VEX IQ releases a new game that the teams compete in. The game consists of a series of challenges that the robots must complete within a specific time frame. The game changes yearly, so teams must adapt their robots to the new challenges.
