Mr. Liedtke

 On behalf of the Robotics Education & Competition (REC) Foundation, welcome to the 2022-2023 VEX IQ Competition Slapshot season, presented by Northrop Grumman Foundation. We are very excited to offer our robotics community a fun and action-packed season!

The REC Foundation’s mission is to increase student interest and involvement in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) by engaging students in hands-on, affordable, and sustainable robotics engineering programs. Through remote and in-person activities, students increase their innovative thinking, problem-solving, and communication skills, enhancing their academic journey to build a talented workforce in various STEM-related professions.

Some of the world's technologically advanced companies are eager to hire the next generation of innovators from REC Foundation programs. It’s our goal to leverage competitive robotics to see students increase technical abilities while learning workforce skills and having fun with their team.

The REC Foundation is dedicated to providing the guidance and resources to ensure that the season and competitions run smoothly so that all participants, coaches, and volunteers have a rewarding experience. We encourage you to explore resources here in the Digital Welcome Kit including VEX IQ Competition Slapshot information, VEX IQ STEM Labs (with free curriculum), VEX IQ Educator Certifications, free software downloads, and much more.
