VEX Classroom and Competition Robotics Kits are complete kits designed for use in a daytime classroom or for a team involved in a competitive robotics program.
Use the included Autodesk-VEX Curriculum to start teaching with VEX Robotics, from the basics of engineering, robotics and design all the way up to a semester-ending classroom competition. If you’re fielding a competitive robotics team outside the classroom, these kits include the most popular items used to design and build VEX competition robots.
These kits will be available for purchase in August.
This kit is a great starting point for an elite level VRC team, but that isn’t the only target market.
Not every robot uses 10 motors. Not even all competition robots use 10 motors. For instance, a large number of VEX users will use this kit for competitions within their classroom & district. These smaller competitions will run just fine with 8-motors per robot (or less).
Many teams compete in VRC without the maximum number of motors. We have a broad spectrum of users and have tried to tailor our kit offerings accordingly.
To be clear…
There are (8) 2-wire Motor 393 Modules in the C&C Super Kit:
(1) in the Clawbot Kit pre-installed on the Claw
(3) in the Clawbot Kit “loose”
(1) in the Base of the C&C Super Kit
(1) in the Mechatronics Add-On Kit
(2) in the Programming Add-On Kit
Will the Autodesk-VEX Curriculum be updated to include the Common Core standards? The vast majority of districts seem to be adopting the Common Core, I know we have here in DC and it would be incredibly helpful for our teachers to have those matched with each unit.
