General Info

The STEM Center at Henderson State has always provided the best possible VEX IQ experiences for our students, coaches, and school communities. VEX IQ is a program near and dear to our hearts.

For the safety of our volunteers, the teams, and coaches, the Reddie Tournaments will only allow the team members, the primary coach, and one assistant inside the university buildings.  If this changes, we will let everyone know as soon as possible.  

We WILL live stream this event. Visit the STEM Center's VEX IQ webpage to find the links.

The Reddie for Robotics tournaments are held in the Garrison Ballroom on Campus at Henderson State.  This has been changed to a Middle School only tournament.
