I need help on my VEX essay for school

Hey yall,
I’m writing an essay on VEX robotics for school.
If you have time, can you reply with where your from, (state/country is fine) and your favorite VEX quote. I’ll cite you in my bibliography lol .
Thanks!

I assume you’ve searched the “team quotes” and other similar threads. In fact, I’m pretty sure there was one with this exact request.

I don’t really have a favorite quote besides “If it ain’t broke, it’s only a matter of time,” (-Me) and that wouldn’t really fit what I envision your essay to be.

I do consider myself a solid writer, so if you need help revising or whatever, feel free to pm me. (But I’m sure there are actual educators who are certified to do so. I just “like” the practice.)

Edit: yes there is a very similar thread. Here it is:

-kids in vex robotics learn skills in STEM, problem-solving, implementing the design process, and teamwork
-prepares them for a future career with technology
-encourages schools to put more funds and support in STEM education by having a robotics team

-Vex has provided me with an outlet to build, test, and use the engineering process and math that I learned in my classes.

Weird, the team number does not appear on as a team in the region… Typo>?
Or not yet registered for the season?

“The hardest part of Vex is getting sponsors.”
With that in mind @lacsap, Joe told me I could piggy back off of you guys. True? Or just hopeful thinking on his part?

quotes, where your from?

Just main ideas you can base your paper on, I’m sure you can interview a robotics coach or read articles ab benefits of STEM education.

hmmm i see. one of the interesting things I wanted to cover was how widespread vex was. and that it’s not all about coding and hard stuff. You could have some fun in it to while learning.

I remember the moment I found that out when I first joined the VEX Coaches Facebook group.

I am from Indianapolis, Indiana. On my first day in VEX Robotics, my coach told me that “a good robot can be made great with outstanding programming.”
