Poster Design Challenge - High School
VEX Robotics envisions a world where every student has the opportunity to be inspired by the excitement of hands-on, minds-on STEM learning and the feeling of creating something with technology. VEX teams give students opportunities to question, tinker, experiment, and play while building valuable skills like communication, collaboration, and time management. Entries for this challenge will inspire students, mentors, and supporters to get involved with the VEX Robotics competitions.
Show us what makes you love VEX Robotics competitions, and what might make someone else try them out. Your poster should use a combination of words and images to show the fun and possibilities involved in robotics education and competition. Remember what inspired you to join, or imagine what could inspire a friend or neighbor to join you on a team or as a mentor or supporter.
Be creative and have fun with it!
