VEX IQ Super Kit Giveaway!

Thanks to generous support from the NASA WV Space Grant Consortium, RCBI has five VEX IQ Super Kits to award to groups interested in launching new competitive robotics teams! These kits, which are a $500 value, will be placed with groups, organizations, maker spaces, or robotics clubs seeking to start new or additional teams.

Recipients will be selected based on the number of young people reached by the organization or group, whether the groups’ STEM initiatives reach girls, and the availability of these tools to all members of the organization or the public.  It is important that a description of the group’s plans to start a new team be included.

Complete the application form below. Once your form is submitted, it will be reviewed for consideration. If your group is selected you will be notified.
