Where to start?
Download VEX EDR V5 programming Software: The latest offering from VEX robotics is VEXcode. There are two versions: VEXcode V5 Blocks and VEXcode V5 Text. The blocks version looks almost identical to the VEX IQ version and is based on SCRATCH. If you’re new to programming, this is good to start with, but more experienced coders will choose to use the Text version, which uses C++ as the programming language. There are some other coding solutions, such as PROS and Robot Mesh Studio. All the software solutions are free to use, download the one you prefer, or all of them.
Legacy: Vex Coding Studio
VEX EDR V5 Courses – By Robot-HQ
STEM Labs – by VEX Robotics
STEM Labs contains a complete curriculum with lesson plans, worksheets and quizzes, which gets added to by VEX quite frequently. It may be a little laborious and slow to work through, but it is good for beginners to get acquainted with the VEX V5 and VEXcode system. Best of all, it is all free to use.
Get Certified as an instructor – by VEX Robotics
VEX Robotics is now offering a robotics educator certification course – for free. It is relatively comprehensive, but not as thorough as the paid (600 US$) course offered by Carnegie Mellon University. This is a good course to do if you’re just starting out as a robotics coach/teacher, but in order to stay ahead of what your students know it is advisable that you continue your training in software and coding. The coding principles taught in this course cover only the very basic needs.
