VEX IQ Summer 2014 Refresh
If you were to survey top VEX IQ Challenge teams from around the world on their build processes, a common theme would begin to appear: continuous improvement. After each match, these teams analyze their performance on the field looking for any way to improve their match score.
This mentality of continuous improvement and iterative design is prevalent in real-world engineering as well, especially here at VEX Robotics. We care as much about improving our "match score" as those top teams do, and our playing field is the classroom, the living room, or wherever you build robots.
When VEX IQ launched in the summer of 2013, we made sure to keep an eye on how you used the kits. What worked? What was missing? What could be improved? After compiling a year of user feedback, we are excited to announce the VEX IQ Summer 2014 Refresh! All changes detailed below are now available unless otherwise noted.
