Your PD+ membership includes registration to the conference, direct access to the STEM education experts from VEX Robotics, a vibrant professional learning community, an extensive video library, training courses, and more, 365 days a year.
Professional Learning Across the VEX Continuum
The VEX Robotics Educators Conference offers professional learning created for teachers by teachers, across the VEX Continuum. From teaching Computer Science with VEX 123 through teaching CTE with Workcell, we have the professional learning you need to build your STEM teaching confidence and expertise!
Honestly, it changed my whole perspective on robotics education… I’m a total robotics education convert!

I had an incredible time at the event and came away feeling inspired and energized. I highly recommend it to other educators looking to grow and improve in their field.
CTE (Career and Technical Education) Teacher,
Dallas Independent School District
The VEX Robotics Educators Conference was a perfect fit for me because it allowed me to gain creative ideas to use VEX GO and VEX 123 in my classroom. A highlight was that I got to meet educators in person who I had spoken with on PD+. This conference is special because of the VEX community full of dedicated educators.
K-5 Elementary Technology Integrator,
Elizabeth Forward School District
The VEX Robotics Educators conference was a huge benefit for its networking and inspiration. Seeing the teams from so many different countries competing, and then getting to meet the coaches at the Educator sessions brought the experience full circle. Learning new ideas to integrate content and support all learners was a highlight for me.

Presented “Student-Centered Assessment with VEX GO and VEX 123” with my colleague @JustJessRobots this weekend in Dallas, TX. I enjoyed talking to educators like @lmackay and @JohnstonMarkA who I follow on VEX Community. VEX Worlds was an incredible experience! @VEXRobotics pic.twitter.com/thB45g2eTE— Anna V.

Autonomous stacking challenge! Kids have one rule to program the robot to stack the cubed autonomously. Only thing the students can do is feed the cube but can't touch the stack or the robot. They did great! pic.twitter.com/nCJ1Ir6ZW8— Omar Cortez (@MrCortezRobotic) January 13, 2023
This is amazing!! https://t.co/WusGtqrd3y— Lauren Harter (@SmarterwHarter) January 11, 2023
