VEX Robotics Alumni Community!
With graduation approaching, the REC Foundation encourages all VEX
Robotics high school seniors to join the VEX Robotics Alumni
Community now for valuable networking, internship, career, and
volunteer opportunities! It’s a great way to stay involved in the
robotics community and gain critical information to further your
education and career. To learn more and join the program, please
visit Alumni Stories - REC Foundation - REC Foundation Alumni Association - REC Foundation .
REC Foundation Industry Certifications!
The REC Foundation is pleased to provide two industry certifications
for schools, students in engineering-related programs, and robotics
clubs. Students are expected to have at least 150 hours of
pre-engineering or robotics classroom experience. Each certification
is broken into several modules and certain modules are required, but
students are not limited to how many they take. Students earn both
certifications when completing the Robotics requirements, as those
exceed Pre-Engineering. To learn more, please visit: Industry
Certifications - Industry Certifications .
