This fall our VEX Community teams are back and competing for the 2022/23 VEX Robotics season. These teams are for elementary, middle and high school students in Manassas and Loudoun who do not have a robotics team or program at their school. Registration is now open and due by October 15th for the 2022-2023 school year. Teams will start meeting the week of September 26th at both locations.
We’ll be using the VEX IQ Challenge (VIQC) and VEX Robotics Competition (VRC) platforms. VEX IQ is a platform that consists of robots assembled from plastic snap-together parts and consist of 2-3 members. The programming used is Graphical or Text-based. VRC robots are metal and put together with metal screws and advanced parts and consist of 3-5 members. The programming is Text-based.
Our goal with these teams is to introduce kids to STEM and instill in them a quality robotics foundation. On a robotics team, participants learn the design process as well as gaining problem solving and teamwork skills. It’s an excellent gateway into STEM and also teaches the soft skills needed to excel in higher Ed or a professional environment.
