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.
Dr. Douglas D. Osheroff
California Institute of Technology; Graduate studies at Cornell; During his senior year in high school, he constructed a 100 keV X-ray machine. Winner of the 1996 Nobel Prize in Physics for the discovery of superfluidity in helium-3; awarded jointly to also include David M. Lee and Robert C. Richardson.
I was a good student, but only excelled in physics and chemistry. I was intellectually rather lazy, and in high school would take a free class period so I could get my homework done, freeing evenings for my many projects. I had the most trouble in math, and only through considerable trauma gradually improved from a grade of C+ to A+ over three years.
