The world faces an unprecedented need for new innovators, thinkers, and problem solving leaders. At current rates there are simply not enough students choosing STEM-related (Science, Technology, Enginnering and Math) paths to meet the global demand.
Vex Robotics' mission is to create tools that educators and mentors will use to shape the learners of today into the problem solving leaders of tomorrow. They envision a world where every student has the opportunity to be inspired by the excitement of hands-on STEM learning and knows the feeling of creating something with technology. Vex Robotics want people of all ages and backgrounds to recognize that creative problem solving is fun and see its importance in shaping a better future.
The study of robotics inherently relates to all facets of STEM, and when students learn through exploration, it increases motivation and desire to succeed.
