VEX IQ Activities
These activities offer more ways to engage with the VEX IQ (2nd generation) Kit, providing simple one page exercises that blend STEM concepts with curricular content in fun and engaging ways.
They are designed to be easy to follow for independent student use, giving them great flexibility in terms of classroom implementation. Activities can be used as part of a teacher's lesson, as an extension activity, or as a scaffolding strategy to support differentiated learning.
Each one is designed with Step by Step instructions for students to complete the activity, as well as "Level Up" prompts for additional challenges, and "Pro Tips" to highlight techniques and concepts around building and design.
