SUPPLEMENTING HIGHER EDUCATION WITH COMPETITIVE ROBOTICS
The VEX U college and university competition has nearly 300 teams competing in local tournaments and at VEX Worlds. Based on the VEX Robotics Competition, VEX U teams are allowed more customization and greater flexibility than other grade levels while providing the effective costs and real-world limitations of a restricted development environment. See more on why colleges get involved in the VEX U program.
