During the expo, kids competed in VEX events such as the VEX IQ Squared Away competition and the VRC competition.
“The VEX program creates a new game every year,” Trokey said. “So what you see here is just for this year and next year there will be another game.”
Trokey said the challenges are recreated from scratch every year to keep the competitors thinking and expanding their minds.
“One year they had to manipulate and stack cones as well as manipulate balls,” Trokey said. “This year they have to move and stack boxes. There’s all sorts of different things and every year they start from scratch and they learn how to plan.”
