Coding and Computational Thinking with VEX IQ

Learn about coding and computational thinking with the VEX IQ (2nd Gen) robot.

Coding and Computational Thinking with VEX IQ (2nd Generation) provides a structured sequence of programming activities in real-world project-based contexts. The projects are designed to get students thinking about the patterns and structure of not just robotics, but also programming and problem-solving more generally. This curriculum includes videos, animations, and step-by-step lessons designed to help beginners learn behavior-based programming using the VEX IQ 2nd Generation hardware and VEXcode programming software.

Getting Started with VEX IQ

The Getting Started unit covers setting up the VEX IQ 2nd generation robot's hardware and firmware, as well as how to build, compile, and run programs in VEXcode IQ Blocks. 

Programming the Brain with VEX IQ

In this unit, you will learn how to control the output on the VEX IQ Robot Brain's screen with sequential programming. You will program with lines, shapes, colors, and text to customize a screen display!

Capstone: Subterranean Challenge with VEX IQ

In this unit, you will demonstrate your ability to decompose an open-ended problem into small pieces, and then iterate on a robust solution to the problem.
