How did Vex Robotics started?

After ten (10) years of Vex Robotics, I’m carious to know what started Vex Robotics. I tried doing research on how it started but I haven’t had any luck with that. If anyone knows what started Vex, please feel free to reply and take your time writing it. History takes some come to talk about.

Cheers!

Check this thread. About half-way down there is a good account of The Olde Days of VEX.
