Using VEX V5 Activities in the Classroom

Anatomy of an V5 Activity


Your VEX V5 classroom is a multifaceted learning environment, enabling students and teachers to have learning experiences through multiple avenues. VEX V5 STEM Labs are designed for whole-class instruction, while VEX V5 Activities extend that learning by giving students the opportunity to make their V5 builds, code and kits their own. V5 Activities are designed to be used both in conjunction with STEM Labs to extend lessons, and as stand-alone activities themselves.

Explore the VEX V5 Kit


VEX V5 Activities allow for students to explore VEX V5 Kits and materials as individuals or in small groups. Some Activities encourage students to learn the names of pieces and where they are in the Kit. Other Activities allow students to explore how V5 pieces can be assembled into various shapes or to solve challenges.
