VEX GO is a 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.
During the season, teams will be guided through discovery and exhibition in relation to selected STEM Labs. Teams will be meeting once per week to work together to complete the tasks laid out. All skill levels are welcomed and needed, technical or non-technical.
During each session, participants follow along with the instructor to design / build / program / experiment with the activity of the day. Sample instructions can be found on the VEX Website. Depending on the complexity of the activities, anywhere from one to three different lessons may be taught during each session.
