A STEM education revolution.

VEX IQ is a robotics platform designed to transform STEM learning for young students and their teachers. Students as young as 8 can jump right in and snap robots together using this intuitive, toolless platform while educators can utilize the free VEX IQ Curriculum to help teach them valuable lessons and skills that are needed in today's changing world. The VEX IQ Challenge, presented by the Robotics Education & Competition Foundation, gives students affordable access to the inspiration, excitement and learning that comes from participating in a STEM challenge.

VEX IQ Starter Kits start at $249.99 and are shipping now! Take a look at all that is possible in the VEX IQ Robot Showcase.

VEX Clawbot IQ

Simple, flexible, powerful.

The VEX IQ system was designed to be simple and easy for students to use. Structural pieces snap together and come apart without tools, allowing for quick build times and easy modifications. A variety of gears, wheels and other accessories allows for complete customization of VEX IQ projects and mobile robots.

The Robot Brain takes high-end, powerful technology and simplifies it for educational use while keeping a high ceiling. Connect any combination of up to 12 Smart Port devices to the Robot Brain, which can then be controlled by built-in programs or programmed via a computer and compatible software program. In addition to using pre-programmed instructions, VEX IQ robots can be controlled by drivers using the Controller.

VEX IQ sensors, including a color sensor, gyroscope, or distance sensor allow for advanced robots and teaching opportunities.


Expand learning potential with our technology and education partners.

Free graphical programming software, powered by Modkit, allows for custom robot commands, sensor interaction and more. ROBOTC 4.0 for VEX IQ, created by Robomatter Inc. and supported by Carnegie Mellon Robotics Academy, allows robot programming in C.

VEX Assembler powered by Autodesk 123D adapts the power of Autodesk's advanced 3D modeling tools, giving students the ability to assemble and test VEX IQ mechanisms and robots virtually.

Project Lead The Way, the leading provider of rigorous and innovative STEM education curricular programs used in middle and high schools across the U.S., is developing an elementary program that will include modules utilizing VEX IQ.

The affordable, accessible and scalable VEX IQ system will take STEM education at younger ages to a whole new level.
