Vex Robotics Competitions
Vex Competitions are the largest and fastest growing Robotics competitions in elementary, middle and high schools globally. Each year, an exciting Engineering challenge is introduced in the form of a game in which over 20,000 teams from over 50 countries participate.
Winners have a chance to move up to provincial or national levels, even competing internationally. It takes about one year to prepare and compete in tournaments and during this time, students learn technical skills in the following areas:
- Technical Design
- Mechanics and Building
In addition, students learn life-long skills such as Teamwork, Perseverance, Communication, Project Management, Costing and Budgeting, Problem solving and Conflict Management. Over 95% of participants report an increased interest in STEM-related careers which will create future innovators.

Please fill out the form below to join our competition mailing list and click the links above to view the information packages. Parents will receive a link to join an orientation session in January for more information and to ask questions. If a student has never attended a robotics competition, it is best to join a Recreational team in the first year. We will review applications and select a limited number of students for Professional and VRC teams.
