VEX Robotics Competition

The VEX Robotics Competition, presented by the Robotics Education & Competition Foundation, is the largest and fastest growing middle school, high school and university robotics program globally with more than 20,000 teams from 50 countries playing in over 1,700 competitions worldwide. Each year, an exciting engineering challenge is presented in the form of a game. Students, with guidance from their teachers and mentors, build innovative robots and compete year-round.

In addition to learning valuable engineering skills, students gain life skills such as teamwork, perseverance, communication, collaboration, project management, and critical thinking. The VEX Robotics Competition prepares students to become future innovators with 95% of participants reporting an increased interest in STEM subject areas and pursuing STEM-related careers.

Why USC VEX Robotics?


We 3D print most of our robot parts.
Join the team to learn how to use industry standard technologies like Autodesk Inventor


You will learn how to design the robot and use CAD to customize some specific parts for the robot.


Our robots are programmed using C++ and PROS. We don't use motion profiling libraries so all our code is written bespoke for each robot we build.
