Compete on a New Level of International Robotics
Join a VEX IQ team! The program competes in the DC VEX league. We have around three tournaments a season and then qualifications for VEX Worlds, the largest robotics competition in the world! VEX is a competitive robotics program that runs four months in fall starting in September and winter starting in January for kids in third grade or those younger with a history in robotics. Practice is most Sundays starting at 4pm.
FIRST LEGO LEAGUE
Compete in America's Favorite Robotics Program!
Join CCR's FIRST program in the DC/VA league. FIRST Robotics uses the LEGO Mindstorms robots that performs on a field for the engineering to code and program!
