The VEX Robotics Competition is normally a STEM activity for middle school and high school students, but VEX U (Collegiate VEX) takes the VEX Robotics Competition to the next level for university students.

Each year, an engineering challenge is presented in the form of a game. Students, use the VEX Robotics Design System to build innovative robots designed to score the most points possible in qualification matches, elimination matches and Skills Challenges. VEX U students have to conquer the same game as the high school students, but with a few twists. They need build two different sized innovative robots that work together to score the most points possible. In addition to having a great time and building amazing robots, through their participation in VEX U, students get to apply the theoretical STEM knowledge they learn in their college courses, while picking-up many of the academic and life skills necessary to excel in the workforce.
