VRC Middle School - Career Readiness Online Challenge

It’s estimated that by 2025 nearly 3.5 million STEM jobs will go unfilled. The engineering design process is a practical approach to problem-solving that is utilized by VEX Robotics teams and in a wide range of potential careers. Entries for this challenge will explore the way professionals in a specific career or company use and document the steps of the engineering design process.

VEX Robotics competitors are uniquely positioned to become future innovators and pursue STEM-related careers. Many of the skills developed, including application of the engineering design process, will directly transfer to future professions. We want you to explore a possible future career, and discover the similarities and differences in how that prospective career and VEX Robotics teams use and learn from the process of engineering design. There are many paths that you can take to becoming a STEM leader. Which will you choose?
