Repurpose sponsored by the REC Foundation

With over 13 years of VEX events and competitions, we know there are a great deal of old game elements out there.  We challenge you to look in storage rooms, closets, and boxes to find previously used game elements from VEX IQ, VEX VRC, and VEX U games.  Find a way to give these game elements a new purpose.  Consider how you can make something to assist a teacher or student in the classroom, or perhaps something for around the house.  The sky is the limit with your creativity.

To solve this problem, we used Tower Takeover's blocks to create a footrest for people to use.
