General Info

Meet VEX GO 

 

VEX GO is an affordable STEM construction system that taps into children's natural inquisitiveness. 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 GO fosters critical learning at an age when young minds are still open to their full potential.

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

Participants do not need the VEX GO construction kit, but will need a computer or tablet to "play along" with the coding activities and explore the many online resources.
