Inspiration All Stars

Students participating in VEX Competitions encounter “Inspiration All-Stars” each and every day. Some are teachers and mentors who work with individual teams to make a robotics program work. Others are volunteers who help make events happen. They all are devoted individuals who put in many hours of hard work with persistence and passion. Whether these individuals help students achieve goals that may have seemed out of reach or provided opportunities for students to expand their knowledge and solve problems in the worlds of STEM, these all-stars show true leadership and dedication to the VEX Competition experience.

When working on an engineering challenge, the wrong approach is to go with the first idea. There is an infinite number of ways to solve a problem. The trick is to spend time upfront making sure to find the simplest solution; hence, innovation happens first. Simple solutions are always easier to execute than complicated ones.
