The Vietnam VEX Robotics National Championship 2024 is a platform open to all robotics enthusiasts nationwide, without barriers based on gender, ethnicity, or geography. Organized in compliance with REC Foundation standards, the competition aims to select 10 qualified Vietnamese teams to compete at the world's largest Robotics competition - the VEX Robotics World Championship 2024 in Dallas, Texas. The championship has attracted participation from 250 teams from 31 provinces and cities across Vietnam, comprising nearly 1,400 students. Teams will engage in a total of 2,208 matches for the VEX IQ category and 281 matches for the VEX V5 category through challenges such as the Teamwork Challenge, Driving Skills Challenge, and Programming Skills Challenge. Approximately 2,000 guests are expected to attend the event at NIC Hoa Lac, with an additional 20,000+ viewers following the livestream on various online platforms.

Through this competition, students from across Vietnam are gaining experience and skills critical that will contribute to innovation-driven inclusive economic growth. To facilitate the evaluation of a large number of matches and select winners and representatives for Vietnam to compete at the VEX Worlds, the judging panel are experts in robotics and STEAM education from Hanoi University of Science and Technology, University of Technology, Fulbright University, and other institutions.

Tran Viet Hung, Co-founder of STEAM for Vietnam, also shared, "We are delighted that now students from various regions of Vietnam have the opportunity to learn and participate in challenges no different from students in developed countries like the United States. We hope that through experiences like this competition, students will gradually acquire the skills and expertise to compete in the global labor market in the future."
