VEX EDR is the exclusive robotics platform offered to PLTW schools, thereby bringing new and exciting opportunities for students across the United States. PLTW’s courses have been updated with rigorous new lessons implementing VEX EDR, ensuring that students will run the full gamut of robotics, from design, to building, to programming.

In addition to learning a wide variety of STEM lessons inside the classroom, every PLTW student is invited to participate in the VEX Robotics Competition, the largest and fasting growing middle and high school robotics competition in the world. This serves as a great opportunity to teach these students life lessons to apply outside of the classroom, such as teamwork, leadership, and project management.

The following kits are shipped via FedEx from the main VEX Robotics warehouse in Greenville, TX. Freight can be arranged for large orders. For information on ordering with a Purchase Order, visit our ordering FAQ page.

For more information on PLTW and to learn more on how you or your student can become involved, visit their website at www.pltw.org.
