Run robots on the Moon!

You can also try your hand at controlling a robot on the Moon.
Thanks to our partner Cogmation Robotics you can now download a 60-day free trial of the Virtual Robotics Kit, available from this website.

The simulation toolkit will allow you to try out working with a robotics grabber, made using VEX IQ elements, and running just like it would on the Moon.

PHASE ONE WINNERS HAVE BEEN FOUND!

Finally!
