Summary

VEX Go is a new and exciting product from VEX Robotics that helps us introduce the world of STEM, robotics and coding to our pupils. With the improved storage system, coloured parts for easy identification, fantastic ‘how to’ guides and a range of free activities for teachers to access, VEX have created a product that will improve STEM outcomes for all your learners.  

Through the live sessions and self-study elements of the course, we will introduce VEX Go as a tool to engage with STEM in your classrooms. We will look at an overview of all the VEX Go kit, how to use the different components, prepare your kit for use and introduce stater builds such as ‘Code Base’ and ‘Super Car’ to show what the kit can do. We will then look at coding using the VEX Code Go app, before considering how to use the STEM labs and online resources.
