VEX CURRICULUM AND RESOURCES
VEX Robotics STEM Labs
VEX Robotics have teamed up with teachers to create STEM Labs, a supplemental educational resource.
VEX created these to support educators with free, easy to follow STEM lesson plans that align with educational standards.
At Kiwibots, we've worked closely with VEX to map these against the NZ Curriculum, making it even easier to integrate.
Each STEM Lab contains hands-on lessons with guided explorations that encourage teamwork and collaboration.

Anybody in New Zealand (teacher, coach, parent, anyone!), can gain VEX Certification online, opening up access to a growing global community of users and resources in many Professional Learning Communities (PLCs).
The VEX Certification System is available to all users at no cost and VEX and the REC Foundation have compiled many resources to help people gain their certification.
The VEX Certification System demonstrates to other educators (and volunteers) that VEX certified educators understand the fundamentals of using and implementing VEX Robotics. The VEX Certification System also allows REC Foundation volunteers to demonstrate competency in various aspect of running a REC Foundation event.
In addition to the lessons in the training courses, users will also have the opportunity to take practice exams, ensuring that they are completely prepared for the certification exam
