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.
Explore VEXcode VR with new activities to collect trash from the coral reef, try out
the Mars Math Expedition Competition, collect mineral samples and explore a new planet with Rover Rescue!
Use your VEX robots to help a hungry squirrel gather nuts for winter with VEX 123, build and code a parade
float with VEX GO, navigate your BaseBot through a maze with VEX IQ, or code a pizza delivery project with
Bring the excitement and motivation of robotics competitions to your classroom! Engage students in a
classroom competition using the coding activities above. Project a leaderboard in your classroom to keep
track of students’ scores as they complete coding challenges.
