STEM jobs are added
to the workforce every day

Give your students the tools they need to succeed

With more and more schools adopting robotics as a platform to enrich and enhance science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) courses, teachers need a program that allows them to seamlessly integrate curriculum and hardware into the classroom.

As such, we have worked with various industry-leading partners to create an array of VEX curriculum offerings, each tailored to the specific needs of teachers. Each offering was developed by forward thinking organizations who are experienced at creating tools to keep STEM education exciting and inspiring.

You have a choice when it comes to professionally developed classroom curriculum.

Below are three custom tailored VEX EDR curriculum offerings, each with unique goals and methods of implementation.

You don't have to be a nerd to teach robotics

Our standards mapped curriculum can be adapted to fit any situation

The VEX EDR Curriculum is designed to help students in grades 7-12 explore the fundamentals of robotics and the engineering design process while learning to use industry-leading CAD software, and VEX Classroom & Competition Robotics Kits. Students will walk through the design and build a robot to play a sport-like game, while also learning key STEM principles, and robotics concepts. At the culmination of the class, they compete head-to-head against their peers in the classroom, or on the world stage in the VEX Robotics Competition.

  • Introductory lessons to building with the VEX EDR System
  • 13 Units, covering topics such as CAD, object manipulation, and drivetrains
  • Familiarizes Familiarises student with concepts of the VEX Robotics Competition
