With the VEX Robotics programs, students join teams of up to 10 members to make their own robots using VEX official parts. The teams will compete with their robots in tournaments between December and February. The VEX challenge includes teams from all over the world, and changes every year to introduce new engineering and technical problems to solve. Every team starts fresh each year.
A major part of the process is to document the design and building process in an engineering notebook, judged at the competitions. Students are encouraged to utilize CAD software to help with the design of the robots, they also learn how to program their robots in ROBOT-C to enable their robots to operate using game controllers and autonomously. Eventually, students will take their finished robots to multiple competitions at the Regional level. If successful enough, they will have the opportunity to continue at the State, National, and then to the ultimate goal, VEX Worlds. Historically, Flower Mound always finishes strong in VEX, and routinely sends teams to the VEX Nationals and World Competitions.
