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.

kacinnamon

I love robotics, especially VEX robotics! VEX robotics has taught me not just about robots, but the combination of engineering, math, physics, and programming. Building a robot is a lot of fun and very challenging. I mentor at my old elementary school twice a week to their FLL/VEX IQ team. It is very rewarding using the skills I have learned to help others. I plan to pursue a degree in Computer Science or Mechanical Engineering in the future.

Online Essay by Jacob Youngea Finley

Techtronics

On team 415D Techtronics I run the website, help by taking pictures at competitions, I also am always ready when a teammate needs help or needs something done. In Principles of Engineering we used VEX parts to build a car to be powered by a hydrogen fuel cell or solar panel. Shortly after joining Techtronics, I decided I wanted to be a mechanical engineer because I liked taking the metal, cutting it and then assembling it onto the robot and then putting on the motors and gears to get the robot running. The first time I heard about robotics my freshman year of high school I wanted to go and...

Eric_J

When I first looked at the common application as a junior to see what I would need to fill out the next year, I looked and saw on the options to select an honor that you could say it was a school, state, national or international honor. I thought to myself, does anyone win an award that is national or international; why would they even have these options? It turns out that it was me. Last year we designed a simple but efficient robot and won an excellence award. We continued winning at least one trophy at every competition including a second excellence award and a tournament champion’s...

Vex Robotics to Me

Vextermination

Vex Robotics allows us to contribute to a growing community of future engineers. My effort and time goes into programming for my team. It has encouraged my dream of becoming an engineer in the future as well as fueling my ambition to make the dream become reality. As the troubles in our robot are fixed, I hope it is a representation that future problems will be just as quickly resolved if it be not instantaneous.
