From elementary school through college, VEXcode is a coding environment that meets students at their level. The intuitive layout of VEXcode allows students to get started quickly and easily. VEXcode is consistent across Blocks and Text, across VEX IQ and VEX V5. As students progress from elementary, middle, and high school, they never have to learn a different blocks, code, or toolbar interface. As a result, students can focus on creating with technology, not trying to navigate a new layout.

Drive Forward is the new Hello World
We all know that robots attract kids to learn. VEX Robotics and VEXcode are providing opportunities for students of all ages to participate in learning the code that makes these robots work. VEX makes computer science come to life through collaborations, hands-on projects, and engaging experiences. From classrooms to competitions, VEXcode helps to create the next generation of innovators.

Drag. Drop. Drive.
VEXcode Blocks is the perfect platform for those new to coding. Students use the simple drag and drop interface to create functioning programs. Each block's purpose can easily be identified using the visual cues like its shape, color, and label. We've designed VEXcode Blocks to allow those who are new to robotics to get their robot up and running faster. Now, students can focus on being creative and learning computer science concepts, not stuck trying to figure out the interface.

More accessible than ever
VEXcode even helps across language barriers, allowing student to read blocks and comment programs in their native language.

Drag & Drop. Powered by Scratch Blocks.
Students and Teachers will feel instantly at home with this familiar environment.

Video Tutorials. Grasp concepts faster.
Built-in tutorials cover every aspect needed to get up to speed fast. And more tutorials are coming.

Help is always there.
Getting information on blocks is fast and easy. These resources were written by educators, in a form both teachers and students will grasp quickly.

Drivetrain Blocks. A breakthrough in simplicity.
From driving forward, making precise turns, setting speed, and stopping precisely, VEXcode makes it easier than ever to control a robot.

Setup your VEX robot. Fast.
VEXcode's device manager is simple, flexible, and powerful. In no time at all you can setup your robot's drivetrain, controller features, motors, and sensors.

40+ Example projects to choose from.
Jumpstart your learning by starting with an existing project, covering every aspect of coding, controlling robots, and learning to use sensors.

What’s New

Version 3.0.0

- Enhanced the core Blocks interface of VEXcode for increased compatibility with computing devices and to support future features.
- Introduced a feature that automatically updates all blocks using the old name to the new name when renaming devices in VEXcode.
- Added a feature that disables any blocks using a device instead of generating errors on download when the device is deleted in VEXcode.
- Enabled users to delete and rename broadcast events within a Blocks project.
- Added a new example template for the VIQRC 2023-2024 Herobot "Byte".
- Introduced translation support for Italian.
- Fixed an issue where duplicate names between variables and broadcast event names were preventing projects from being downloaded.
- Addressed an issue where using a "not" operator block on sensing blocks could potentially cause unexpected results and build errors.
- Rectified an issue where the Blocks-generated Python code was creating problems when no objects were detected using the Vision Sensor.
- Resolved an issue where invalid Drivetrain gear ratio settings were preventing a project from being downloaded.

Great Leap Forward

This is a huge improvement over the existing coding programs. Tutorials are helpful, the examples are great and the coding options and flexibility are great for new students. I hope they continue to add in tutorials, challenges, and guided activities for this app to expand the usability in a classroom setting.

Smart radio refuses to connect to brain

We have followed all of the instructions to get the program to pair to the brain. It has only connected 3 time successfully. As I write this, I am in a room full of students who came in early on the weekend to work on programming. We have been unable to connect all morning. Pretty terrible.
