General Info

 

VEX GO Challenge (VGOC) Program - Level Up!

The VGOC program is a classroom based challenge that provides young students with the opportunity to extend their learning through participation in multi-level challenges, set personal achievement goals, and to Showcase their learning as part of the K-College VEX Continuum.

 Now, with the VEX GO Challenge, students are introduced to the world of competitive robotics by participating in both individual  and classroom challenges that are tailor-made for elementary students.

The Robotics Education & Competition Foundation’s mission is to increase student interest and involvement in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) by engaging students in hands-on, affordable, and sustainable robotics engineering programs. The VEX GO Challenge (VGOC) provides students with open-ended challenges allowing them to track their progress, set and achieve personal goals, and apply the engineering design process in a creative way.

VEX GO Teams are presented with a variety of challenges with the goals of having unique designs, best run time, and a creative approach to problem solving.
