Answered: Status of Cortex Classroom Kits?

When will the Cortex Classroom kits and Cortex Starter kits be back in stock and available for order? I understand the need to reject shipments that do not meet QC requirements and applaud VEX for ensuring products they ship to customers meet quality standards. But it is discouraging to work with a couple new teams for several months to get them started, and when they finally get organized and find funding, they cannot order the needed kits to get started. Meanwhile, the competition season is moving on.

We are currently shipping backorders at this time. Product should be available on the web by the end of the week or first of next week. We apologize for the delay and any inconvenience this has caused and appreciate your understanding!


Is the info you provided a couple days ago no longer accurate? The website was changed this morning to show an availability of Mid-October for the Classroom Kit.

We are awaiting a shipment of product that was held up unexpectedly in the customs process.

Classroom Lab Kits with Cortex will be available as soon as we can get this product into our warehouse.
