VEX Academy

VEX Academy (“VA”) is the official training organization under VEX Robotics, Inc.Established in 2016, VEX Academy promotes STEM education by providing training to both students and teachers with our leading Robotics and Computer Science curriculums.

VEX Academy

VEX Academy is an official STEM training arm of VEX Robotics. We focus on spreading the coverage of the VEX STEM curriculums in local markets, by providing trainings to both ages 4-18 youth and teachers with our leading Robotics and Computer Science curriculums.

VEX Academy Teaching Pedagogy

VEX Academy adopts the genuine STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) education concept. Using the inter-disciplinary contents and
the PASR Pedagogy, we aim at cultivating children’s minds for active knowledge
exploration and the ability for life-long learning.
