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.

She had studied a lot and really tried to grasp the material, but was still unhappy because one student got a higher grade than her. "Everyone has something…" she explained "Something that they're really focused on. They can go on about it for hours and never get bored, and they're the best at what they do.

what vex means to me

Vex is about teamwork, being a family. Vex has taught me a lot about not only being an engineer, but about being a leader and stepping up. This program means a lot to me because I learn how to become a better leader. I have learned how to become a leader because I am in control of the pit area during competition. The pit area is a big responsibility on my part because if anything bad happens it’s on me. I am okay with having that weight on my shoulders because I have been taught by my team how to be a good leader. I am very happy being in vex because it feels like I have a second family. Vex...
