Coming May 1, 2018 to the Rio Grande Valley!

We are proud to join the VEX Robotics family as we enter 2018. We have great things planned to support the VEX programs for all here in the Rio Grande Valley.Jorge Hernandez, President of LEAP For STEM
High School

In the VEX Robotics Competition, presented by the Robotics Education & Competition Foundation, teams of students are tasked with designing and building a robot to play against other teams in a game-based engineering challenge. Classroom STEM concepts are put to the test as students learn lifelong skills in teamwork, leadership, communications, and more. Tournaments are held year-round at the regional, state, and national levels and culminate at the VEX Robotics World Championship each April!

VEX EDR Has Curriculum

VEX EDR was designed with education in mind. We have developed our own free curriculum that serves as a companion to the VEX EDR platform!

VEX has also partnered with Robomatter and PLTW, two world-class educational curriculum and solutions providers, to create research driven educational resources that easily implement high-quality STEM Robotics into classrooms. These company’s offerings include comprehensive technology and professional development products to ensure educators are prepared to succeed with implementation via these turn-key STEM educational tools.

*Portions of Robomatter’s products are manufactured under license from Carnegie Mellon University.
