About this app

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.

The app is a great idea for when you forget to put your code into your robot and you dont have your chromebook on you. The thing is, the design of the app is terrible. It is literally just a port of the desktop app just thrown into mobile with barely any changes for mobile. One example is when I try to code using the forward for 1 inch, the gui for picking how many inches is out of porportion and goes off the screen. Sadly, that is not all. Good idea, bad execution.

I'm running this on Samsung DeX and it was working great! I can't seem to program the brain from the USB cable, but I could do it wireless, until today. For some reason the brain will not connect to my phone anymore. I tried all the help and tricks I could fine, but nothing seems to restore the connectivity. While the app is amazing, I can't test anything until this gets fixed. Once I'm connected again, this will be 5 stars for me.
