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.

FIRST Robovation kit. The new kit is significantly upgraded

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,
