Clubs and organizations are a great way to help develop character and the skills that will benefit you in school, your career, and in life. Skills like commitment, leadership, effective communication, and being able to work successfully in a group all come from participating in a club or organization. Joining a club is a great way to make friends, develop leadership skills, and boost your college resumé.

VEX VRC ROBOTICS
Robotics enhances student interest and involvement in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) in every subject. Students are engaged in hands-on, experimental and sustainable robotics engineering programs. Robotics prepares students to become future innovators with an increased interest in STEM subject areas and pursue STEM-related careers. Through partnerships with Code.org and grants from the National Science Foundation and the REC Foundation for VEX robotics, Broward County Public Schools is providing opportunities for all students in computer science and robotics.
About VEX and FIRST Robotics
- VEX Robotics provides tools to inspire the problem solvers of tomorrow through the use of education robotic solutions. Its goal is to create engaging, affordable and powerful solutions that immerse students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) through the excitement of building and programming educational robotics kits. VEX Robotics competitions bring STEM skills to life by tasking teams of students with designing and building a robot to play against other teams in a gamebased engineering challenge. Classroom STEM concepts are put to the test as students learn lifelong skills in teamwork, leadership, communications and more. Tournaments are held year-round at the regional, state and national levels and culminate at the VEX Robotics World Championship each April.
- FIRST Robotics combines the excitement of sports with the rigor of science and technology to create the ultimate sport for the mind. Teams compete head-to-head on a special playing field with robots they have designed, built and programmed. FIRST Robotics addresses inequities in STEM. Supported by generous donors, grants are awarded each year to schools and other community organizations throughout the United States and Canada that serve young people whose access to STEM education and enrichment might otherwise be limited.
