General Info

 

Meet VEX 123 and VEX GO. 

VEX 123 and VEX GO taps into children's natural inquisitiveness. VEX 123 introduces coding in 3 ways that are age appropriate for younger children and FUN!  VEX GO utilizes the VEX plastic construction system, with adaptations for elementary students. The approachability of VEX GO allows young students to investigate, tinker, explore, make mistakes, and try again. VEX 123 and VEX GO foster critical learning at an age when young minds are still open to their full potential.

This Hands-on Workshop will introduce educators to the vast resources and opportunities available using VEX 123 and the VEX GO construction system, VEX Code software package, Curriculum and Teacher Resources, and the VEX GO Classroom Challenges.

Participants will need a computer or tablet to "play along" with the coding activities and explore the many online resources.
