VEX Robotics Essay Challenge

This challenge is to write a short essay on what exactly VEX Robotics means to you. Tell the judges your own story of your involvement on a competition team, in a classroom, or as a hobbyist working with VEX. Perhaps VEX robotics has made you rethink your career plans, or made you want to study engineering in college, or helped you understand physics better. Maybe you have a friend or family member who learned something valuable from their VEX experience. However VEX robotics has improved your understanding, inspired you to try something you didn’t know you could do, or even changed the course of your education - we want to hear about it.

VEX robotics means many things to me. When I first started VEX, I had already competed in First Lego League and Botball, so it wasn’t my first robotics experience, but VEX is the best so far. I thought I had already learned what teamwork and discipline meant, but competing in VEX required the most effort, and the hard work made it worthwhile since our team was able to qualify for Worlds!
