Learning how to build and program a robot can be a challenging process, but the educational opportunities of innovation, creativity, and perseverance are invaluable.
The Technology Student Association VEX IQ Challenge (VIQC, Middle School) and the TSA VEX Robotics Competition (VRC, High School) enable members to challenge themselves in a fun and interactive game setting while engaging in a thought provoking, multidisciplinary, STEM activity. Each year, an engineering challenge is presented in the form of an exciting game in which participants build innovative robots with guidance from their teachers and mentors.
Throughout the design process, participants activate critical thinking skills while exploring the relationshipamong science, technology, engineering, and mathematics to produce a dynamic robotics product. The TSA VEX Robotics Competition offers an exhilarating platform to test a robot’s efficiency and productivity against other robots designed by their peers.
For 2022 the Middle School TSA VEX IQ Challenge (VIQC) game is ‘Pitching In’*
For 2022, the High School TSA VEX Robotics Competition (VRC) game is ‘Tipping Point.’*
*Entries must be started and completed during the current school year.
