Coding Activities Across the VEX Continuum

Whether you are new to educational robotics or a VEX veteran, there are coding activities that you can do with your students to participate in the Hour of Code™! Computer science is no longer viewed as an extracurricular activity, or a subject that is taught to a select few students. Instead, computer science is now recognized as an essential skill for all students.

At VEX, we feel that robotics is the perfect organizer for teaching CS in a hands-on, minds-on, engaging, and meaningful way. The VEX Continuum offers a K - 12 path to bring CS to life for all students, using both physical robots with VEX 123, VEX GO, VEX IQ, and VEX EXP, and virtual robots with VEXcode VR.
