VEX IQ is a robotics platform designed to transform STEM learning for young students and their teachers. Students as young as 8 can jump right in and snap robots together using this intuitive, tool less platform.
The VEX IQ system was designed to be simple and easy for students to use. Structural pieces snap together and come apart without tools, allowing for quick build times and easy modifications. A variety of gears, wheels and other accessories allows for complete customization of VEX IQ projects and mobile robots.
The Robot Brain takes high-end, powerful technology and simplifies it for educational use while keeping a high ceiling. Connect any combination of up to 12 Smart Port devices to the Robot Brain, which can then be controlled by built-in programs or programmed via a computer and compatible software program. In addition to using pre-programmed instructions, VEX IQ robots can be controlled by drivers using the Controller.
VEX IQ sensors, including a color sensor, gyroscope, or distance sensor allow for advanced robots and teaching opportunities.
Free graphical programming software, powered by Modkit, allows for custom robot commands, sensor interaction and more. ROBOTC 4.0 for VEX IQ, created by Robomatter Inc. and supported by Carnegie Mellon Robotics Academy, allows robot programming in C.
