VEX 123 kit

VEX 123 is an interactive, programmable robot that takes Computer Science and Computational Thinking off of the screen and brings them to life for Pre-K through 3rd grade students. The 123 Robot is programmable without a computer, so young students can learn programming away from screens. The VEX Coder and Coder cards give students a tangible way to build projects, share ideas, and learn coding concepts in fun and engaging ways.
