We believe that robotic technologies will be the hallmark of the future. Software is the universal language of the future, and we must use this language to produce domestic and National technologies and represent our country in the field of technology in the best way possible by competing with global giants. VEX Robotics tournaments will be one of the most important milestones on our way to this end,” pointing to the importance of the event.

At this point, our mission is to prepare our young people quickly for the world of robots and to provide them with all the necessary skills. VEX Robotics is already preparing all of our young people for the future with its robot training kits and competitions.
