The VEX IQ Challenge provides elementary and middle school students (aged 8–14) with exciting, open-ended robotics, engineering and research project challenges that enhance their science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) skills through hands-on, student-centered learning.
VEX IQ Challenge teams solve an annual game challenge by designing, building and programming a robot. Students work in teams to score points in teamwork matches and in Robot Skills Challenge. The 2020–2021 challenge is VIQC Squared Away.
