What's VEX® Robotics?

The VEX Robotics Design System offers students an exciting platform for learning about areas rich with career opportunities spanning science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). These are just a few of the many fields students can explore by creating with VEX Robotics technology. Beyond science and engineering principles, a VEX Robotics project encourages teamwork, leadership and problem solving among groups. 

What's the Competitive Robotics Team?

The Competitive Robotics Team will work together to create robots for specific challenges and test their designs against other teams in the area. We use the VEX IQ robotics system and will be participating in the VSB Robotics Competition – a friendly and casual competition series held at Eric Hamber Secondary School Visit VSB Robotics Competition  for more information.​

What's LEGO® Mindstorms®?

The Lego Mindstorms series of kits contain software and hardware to create customizable, programmable robots. They include an intelligent brick computer that controls the system, a set of modular sensors and motors, and LEGO parts from the Technics line to create the mechanical systems.
