Robotics Education & Competition Foundation
Inspiring students, one robot at a time.

FUTURE Foundation Sustainable Design Robot Construction Challenge

The FUTURE Foundation exists to advance robotics and technology through education.

With the Autodesk Sustainability Workshop as inspiration, build a VEX robot or robotically-controlled machine that achieves one or more sustainability goals. You may construct either a full-size VEX robot or a VEX model of a larger machine.

Sustainability is about using engineering and science to reduce human environmental impact. This can mean producing renewable energy, using less energy, replacing high-environmental-impact materials with low-impact alternatives, recycling, reusing, and designing upgradeable products that can meet future needs without having to be replaced.
