What each grant recipient receives

Here are the details of the VEX Robotics kits that are available as a grant through this initiative. The best option for you will depend on the age of the students involved, the amount of time you can devote to working and also the number of students you wish to involve. If you have any questions to determine which would be best, please visit the Contact page.

The aim is that grant recipients will attend at least one official competition each year and will compete for a minimum of two years....registration cost for the second year will be covered as part of the original grant, as long as teams attend an event in the first year.

Teams in your area

All team registration for VEX Robotics events is through the Robot Events website - the 'Map Search' function allows you to look around your location to see what events and teams are close by. The VEX Robotics community is very open and schools will often work with each other during the season for mutual gain. Check out this link for the Map Search.
