Computer Science + Robotics

Educational robotics serves Computer Science education in many ways. First, robots are fun. No matter the subject, teachers are always looking for ways to engage and motivate their students. Also, the everyday relevance of robots in the lives of students provides a natural and authentic hook for student learning. The process of developing coding solutions with a robot provides a relevant context for engaging students in Computer Science. The VEX Computer Science curriculum continuum will provide students with a fun and engaging way to learn authentic applications to Computer Science concepts.



CS with VEXcode VR

VEXcode VR

VEXcode VR lets you code a virtual robot using a block-based coding environment powered by Scratch Blocks or a text-based coding powered by Python.

VEXcode VR is based on VEXcode, the same coding environment used for VEX 123, GO, IQ and V5 robots.
