Need Fundraising Ideas?
Summer is a great time to think about fundraising for the upcoming season! Check out our Fundraising Friday ideas & follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter! Better yet, share your own ideas and tell us what worked best for your team or program. From hosting a pancake breakfast to holding a garage sale, we’ll share new ideas every Friday!

VEX Forums!
Have questions about a game rule? Or about your team’s robot build? Be sure to check out the VEX forums! We offer a [VEX IQ Forum](VEX Forums!) and a VEX Robotics Competition Forum. You can search past discussions to find your answer or if it’s a question that hasn’t been asked, please share it! Chances are someone else might have the same question. Our staff and other VEX enthusiasts will help you find your answer!
