VEX ROBOTICS COMPETITION

The VEX Robotics Competition, presented by the Robotics Education & Competition Foundation, is the ultimate STEM activity for middle school and high school students (ages 11-18).

Each year, an engineering challenge is presented in the form of a game. Students, with guidance from their teachers and mentors, use the VEX Robotics Design System to build innovative robots designed to score the most points possible in qualification matches, elimination matches and Skills Challenges. In addition to having a great time and building amazing robots, through their participation in the VEX Robotics Competition and their work within their team, students will learn many academic and life skills. H.E.A.T. loves VEX, from the Arkansas' First VEX Competition to the VEX World Championships, we have made a quite a long way here. By sharing our experiences, we hope to encourage other people to do this life-changing experience!

Here is the list of competitions that we have been a part of!
