The Robotics Education &Competition Foundation’s mission is to increase student interest and involvement in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) by engaging students in hands-on, affordable, and sustainable robotics engineering programs. We see a future where all students design and innovate as part of a team, experience failure, persevere, and embrace STEM. These lifelong learners emerge confident in their ability to make the world a better place.
The REC Foundation serves over 20,100 student-led teams from elementary school through college in over 50 countries. Each year the REC Foundation works in close partnership with VEX Robotics to unveil new engineering game challenges for the VEX IQ Challenge and the VEX Robotics Competition. Led by their teachers and mentors, students form teams to design, build, and program robots for competition. Creating a workforce prepared to solve our future problems depends on our ability to harness students’ natural curiosity, engage them in meaningful learning opportunities, incite their passion, and expand their interest in a variety of subjects. The VEX competition experience provides just that type of environment, ensuring we have lifelong learners, excited to contribute to their future and ours.
