About the Course

VEXcode VR is a solution developed by VEX Robotics to help kids learn robotics and coding even with social distancing. VEXcode VR is a web-based software designed to help kids learn about coding and robotics even without a physical kit. It uses simulations to help kids visualize their code and make adjustments.

What is VEXcode VR Used For?

VEXcode VR is used as a base for understanding coding. Unlike Java and C++, VEXcode VR uses blocks to code instead of typing it out. The blocks in the code represent lines of code that would be typed out in other languages such as Robot-C and Python. The code is used to simulate a virtual robot in a virtual field. This helps kids develop a sense of coding.

Why Should I Learn VEXcode VR?

VEXcode VR is a great way to learn how to code. With the foundation of VEXcode VR kids can use this to apply it to other languages such as Robot-C. VEXcode VR is a Python based code, this means that the blocks resemble Python. Much like coding a Micro-bit or scratch you can switch to Python and see what your code would look like in Python.
