VEX EDR, is the largest and fastest growing robotics program for middle and high school students. Each year, an exciting engineering challenge is presented in the form of a challenging game. Students, with guidance from their coaches and mentors, build innovative robots in small teams and compete in in VEX Robotics Competitions (VRC) qualification matches, elimination matches, and skills challenges.
In addition to learning valuable engineering skills, students gain life skills such as teamwork, perseverance, communication, collaboration, project management, and critical thinking. The VEX Robotics Competition prepares students to become future innovators with 95% of participants reporting an increased interest in STEM subject areas and pursuing STEM-related careers.
For Grades 7-12 Our VEX EDR program will be forming teams, to compete in VEX Robotics Competitions (VRC). Signup is on a "first-come, first-served" basis as we may have to limit enrollment.
The VEX EDR fall season starts August 14th in the Jenison High School Media center.
This year our season will kick-off with a week long evening "robotics camp". This camp is free of charge and is for all 7th-12th grade students that are part of the robotics program.
Open to all Jenison Elementary Students who are in grades 7-12
