It’s becoming more important for students and educators to have programming software available that is responsive, easy to get started with and has boundless possibilities in its application throughout and beyond education. That’s why VEX Robotics have created VEXcode Blocks & VEXcode Text for their different hardware platforms.

VEX Robotics is the leading platform for educational robotics around the world. The plastic VEX IQ platform aimed at Key Stages 2&3 and the metal VEX EDR kits aimed at Key Stages 3, 4&5 are ideally placed to allow students to grow and develop in an open ended, problem solving and engaging way.

VEXcode Blocks is the perfect coding environment for new and experienced students to bring their VEX robots to life. With easy-to-follow tutorials, Scratch-Powered blocks sign-posted with basic commands and multiple languages to choose from, this software provides everything pupils need to gain a thorough understanding of programming, coupled with a practical hands-on robot build; the ideal fit for educators looking to find a one-stop classroom solution.

VEXcode Text is the same coding environment used by professionals, with the same tools and resources available. From beginners to advanced computer science students, VEXcode Text enables students to expand their programming knowledge to C++ industry language, with boundless scope for development and a real insight into what it’s like to code at industry level. VEXcode Text allows students to fully immerse in the coding process and experience real-world programming all in one place – compatible with their VEX robot.

VEXcode Blocks and VEXcode Text for EDR are available on all devices and desktop applications.
