VEX Robotics motivates young people in STEM

Techstination feature for Friday, March 4, 2022

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.       Happy World Engineering Day.   I don’t think this one was a Hallmark creation…but it is a day to celebrate contributions made by engineeris in a range of fields.   At VEX Robotics…Senior Educational Developer Lauren Harter has been helping to get young people motivated in learning STEM subjects like engineering.   The learning can begin in pre-school….with VEX kits to make it fun..

“When they have these positive experiences from that young age they then  gain interest and feel like they are successful in this area and then want to pursue things like math and science and coding and things along those lines.”

The company works with many school systems but kits are available for homes as well.  There’s a wide range right up through high school and college.  Find more at
