Robotics Competition Details / information
VEX kits inspire students to become the problem solving heroes of tomorrow. The VEX EDR system harnesses the excitement of building robots to immerse learners in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) concepts. Educators can bring VEX EDR into the classroom with our custom-made curriculum or use it as a standalone teaching tool in after-school robotics clubs.
Versatile construction elements take the frustration out of the engineering process. Diverse product line ensures ample opportunities for growth and endless design possibilities. Easy-to-use system enables effective learning for both beginners and experts (ranging from middle school to university)

FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) is an international high school robotics competition. Each year, teams of high school students and mentors work during a six-week period to build game-playing robots that weigh up to 120 pounds (54 kg).
FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) was founded in 1989 to inspire young people's interest and participation in science and technology. Based in Manchester, NH, the 501(c)(3) not-for-profit public charity designs accessible, innovative programs that motivate young people to pursue education and career opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and math, while building self-confidence, knowledge, and life skills.
FIRST is More Than Robots. FIRST participation is proven to encourage students to pursue education and careers in STEM-related fields, inspire them to become leaders and innovators, and enhance their 21 st century work-life skills. Read more about the Impact of FIRST.
