Happy Thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving, we are thankful for every family who has participated in a Falkon program. You are a part of our family, and we appreciate you!

Activities for Thanksgiving break

Continue to work on your robot. But if you have extra time, there are so many other VEX IQ Challenges to participate in besides robotics competitions and win some prize money. Please check out the challenges here.


VRC = VEX V5 Challenges
VIQC = VEX IQ Challenges

We will spend some time discussing this in the classroom. But we will not have much time do any of them in the classroom. So teams are encouraged to meet at home and work on them.
Let me know if you have any questions.

You can use the following table for the grade level classification of your team. (VEX uses age for grade-level classification. They don’t use school grade level.)
