Robotics Education & Competition Foundation
Online Challenges

Compete beyond the Competition Field with the REC Foundation Online Challenges.

There is something for everyone.

  • Artistic? Check out our Photography, Poster, and Promote Challenges.
  • Enjoy programming and robot design? Check out CAD, OnShape, and VEX Code Challenges.
  • Like to do research? Check out Career Readiness or the STEM Research Project.
  • Involved with the community? The Community or Girl Powered Challenge is for you.

No matter what your STEM passion is, there is an Online Challenge for you.  Online Challenges are open to registered REC Foundation Competition Teams from elementary school through college. A Team can choose to particpate in multiple challenges, but may only submit one entry per challenge.  Students submit challenges, compete for top prizes, and gain experience and recognition they can take with them into their future careers.
