Do you know a student who’d like to learn how to create a robot or code?

OPEF VEX Robotics is an award-winning, after-school program for middle schoolers. Teams of students design, build and program robots to compete against other schools at local competitions. Our innovative program uses the excitement of competitive sports to get kids turned on to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

Our program:

  • Brings in STEM professionals to mentor students in the skills they need.
  • Enables students to learn STEM through hands-on projects in small groups.
  • Teaches teamwork, leadership, creativity, problem-solving and project management skills.

This year brings some exciting changes that will make our program better than ever! Read all about it here.

District 97 middle school students (6th-8th grade) who are interested in participating in the OPEF VEX Robotics program this year must attend a Student Interest Meeting at their school and participate in Tryout Meetings.
