"Innovation has become so essential to America’s and the world’s future prosperity. No advanced economy can maintain high wages and living standards, and hold its own in global markets, by producing standard products using standard methods.”

- The New Challenge to America’s Prosperity
Council on Competitiveness, 1999


FIRST Vex™ Challenge

The FIRST Vex™ Challenge (FVC) is a mid-level robotics competition for high-school students. It offers the traditional challenge of a FIRST competition but is more accessible and affordable.

The FIRST Vex Challenge grew out of the existing FIRST Robotics Competition and the FIRST Robovation platform. FIRST, RadioShack, and Innovation First collaborated to develop an improved version of the FIRST Robovation kit. The new kit is significantly upgraded and is called the Vex Robotics Design System.

The ultimate goal of FVC is to reach more young people with a lower-cost, more accessible opportunity to discover the excitement and rewards of science, technology, and engineering.
