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.

Due to the increase in Covid cases and for the safety of our volunteers, the teams, and coaches, the Reddie Tournaments will only allow the team members and one primary coach for each team inside the university buildings.  If this changes, we will let everyone know as soon as possible.  

Parents will not be allowed to stay in the Reddie Cafe to watch the live stream on the tvs. The live stream link will be listed on The STEM Center's site

Currently, this tournament is configured for elementary.  If not enough teams register, we will blend this tournament with middle school teams to make it a state qualifier.  We will make safety decisions based on protocols for COVID, based on updated information. 

Grade Level: Elementary

Skills Challenge Offered: Yes

Judging Format: In-Person judging
