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.

Robotics competitions are not only about increasing STEM knowledge. They provide avenues to learn about team building, strategy, persistence, collaboration, how to win and lose gracefully, and risk taking. I’ve seen so many students’ lives changed as a result of these competitions. It is humbling to have been a part of it all.
