Autodesk is proud to partner with VEX Robotics and the Robotics Education & Competition (REC) Foundation to inspire students to pursue careers in STEM fields, helping close the global skills gap and connecting education to industry through hands-on, curriculum-based robotics engineering programs. In VEX Competitions, teams are tasked with designing and building a robot for a game-based engineering challenge. Classroom STEM concepts are put to the test on the playing field as students learn lifelong skills in teamwork, leadership, communications, and more.
Autodesk is embedded in the VEX learning continuum, providing free* access to professional software and learning tools. Along with units in the VEX EDR Curriculum, Autodesk provides a Kit of Parts for both IQ, VRC and VEX U; and offers an annual online CAD challenge.
