miniVEX - VEX-IQ Classroom robot design

Most people know that I'm a big fan of simple robots in the classroom.  While the more elaborate ones look great, I'm all for having a design that is quick to build with as few parts as possible.  This allows classrooms to more quickly get into the programming side of things.

So here is my miniVEX design.  It can be made by any of the VEX-IQ starter packs that were released after Summer 2014.  If you have a pre-summer 2014 VEX-IQ kit, have a look here for a design that will work with your kit.  - old miniVEX

This design is the one I use for all the activities in my upcoming Teacher Resource book.

As with all my designs, they're completely Creative Commons so please share them around.  All that I ask is that you let me know if you're using them!

Hello, I'm a robotics teacher for 12-14 year old students in Huntsville, Texas. I've bought your Lego and Vex books and I'm planning to use your Vex design this week. Thanks for the resources!

Thank you so much for helping us teachers who have little knowledge about robotics - you don't know how much it is appreciated. Again, Thank You!
