Create & Learn's classes are great! Their classes are fun and engaging and are teaching very important things to the new generation, all of which will come in handy sometime throughout their life. I love how they do lots of hands-on projects, and it's not just listening to a teacher talk. The fact that it's live classes is also a plus! Thank you for such great classes!

My daughter did the Jr Robotics series and really enjoyed it. The class size is small and the teacher was very helpful. I also had her try a number of free trials in Coding and AI and she liked them all. We plan to sign up for more coding classes.

Frequently Asked Questions About VEX VR


What is VEX VR code?

VEX VR code allows students to code a virtual robot using a block-based programming environment, just like Scratch. The VEX VR code platform helps students learn computer science with or without robots.

How do you choose the right VEX programming class?

To choose the right VEX programming class, search for the classes that have a complete program from beginner level to expert level. These programs ensure students enhance their problem-solving skills, as well as their computer science skills. Also, class size can have an impact on learning, so look for VEX programming courses with six students or less. VEX programming allows students to get their robots up and running faster. In most VEX programming classes, students can code for different playgrounds with the help of block-based coding. Block-based coding tends to be much easier than text-based coding, so it's a great place to begin.

Is VEX code VR free?

Yes, VEX code VR is absolutely free. VEX code VR is a web-based coding platform. You don't have to download any software.

How can I start my own robot at home?

To start your own robot at home, try a Vex Robotics kit - which allows students to build their robots from scratch. VEX Robotics offers different kits as VEX 123, VEX GO, VEX IQ, and VEX V5 for respective age groups. VEX also offers virtual robots with virtual 3-D playgrounds to program online, if you are looking to program robots without spending money. If you are looking to build a robot for a competition, VEX has VEX IQ and VEX V5 kits for competitions.

What do you do in VEX Robotics virtual worlds?

In VEX Robotics virtual worlds, you can explore different 3D playgrounds with your virtual robot. Robot virtual worlds simulate popular real-world VEX robots. VEX offers different 3D virtual VEX playgrounds to take advantage of each virtual robot's features. Playgrounds are designed from beginner level to expert level. Educational robotics helps students boost their engagement and motivation towards solving the problems!

How does a VEX competition work?

A VEX competition provides students the chance to compete against other students with their robotics creations. Tournaments are held throughout the year at the regional level, state level, and then national levels, and conclude at the VEX Robotics World Championship. Teams compete trying to get the higher score. Some competitions are hosted by STEM labs, others are hosted by VEX Robotics. Robotics competitions are a great way to expose students to valuable soft skills such as communication, collaboration, and time-management in a fun and authentic way.

What does VEX stand for?

VEX is a homonym. VEX stands for Video Editor for XML (Extensible Markup Language), and was created by Tony Norman and Bob Mimlitch. VEX is also a computer language that is loosely based on the C language. VEX Robotics provides a complete continuum from prep to grade 9+ which includes- VEX123, VEX Go, VEX IQ, VEX V5, and VEX U.
