VEX Robotics is an exciting and fun program where school children from 8-18 years learn about Science Technology Engineering and Maths (STEM) while having fun! They design, build, program and compete with their robot in a spectacular competition organised by Dell.
In addition to STEM the students acquire other skills such as project management, presentation skills, teamwork, leadership, PR and much more.
There are two divisions of the competition currently being run in Ireland, VEX IQ and VEX EDR. VEX IQ is primary school level while VEX EDR is secondary school level.
Each year there is a new challenge and students must work as a team to design, build, program and drive their Robot.
We are very grateful to have the help of two parents to help us with this STEM challenge. A big thank you to Andy Cahill and Kevin McCarthy for helping us with this each week.
