(G2-3) VEX GO

The VEX GO platform is designed for elementary school students and aims to introduce them to the basics of robotics and engineering through hands-on activities. 

  1. Introduction to Robotics: Basic concepts of robotics, understanding the components of a robot, and an overview of the VEX GO system.

  2. Building Skills: Hands-on activities that involve building and assembling VEX GO robots. Students learn about different mechanical structures, use of connectors, and other building techniques.

  3. Programming Basics: Introduction to programming VEX GO robots using a simple and age-appropriate programming language or graphical interface. Students may learn how to control the movements and actions of their robots.

  4. STEM Concepts: Integration of STEM concepts, including basic principles of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The curriculum may use practical examples related to the robot-building process.

  5. Teamwork and Collaboration: Many VEX GO programs encourage teamwork and collaboration. Students may work in groups to design, build, and program their robots, fostering communication and cooperation.

  6. Exploration of Sensors: Introduction to basic sensors and how they can be used to enhance the functionality of robots. Students may learn to incorporate sensors into their robot designs.


Intro to Building

Explore the VEX GO Kit to learn the names and functions of key pieces by building structures to take on a voyage to Mars.



Build a clock and look into its gears and how the minute travels 12x faster than the hour.


Slingshot Car

Build and test a Slingshot Car to explore how it works, and will use what they learn to play a bowling game with their car.


Day and Night

Build a model with VEX GO to show how the Earth spins on its axis to create the day/night cycle, and to explain why the sun appears to move across the sky.
