While participating in the VEX Robotics Competition Nothing But Net season, teams will develop many new skills in response to the challenges and obstacles that stand before them. Some problems will be solved by individuals, while others will be handled through interaction with their student teammates and adult mentors. Teams will work together to build a VEX robot to compete in one of many tournaments, where they celebrate their accomplishments with other teams, family and friends. After the season, students come away not only with the accomplishment of building their own competition robot, but with an appreciation of science and technology and how they might use it to positively impact the world around them. In addition, they cultivate life skills such as planning, brainstorming, collaboration, teamwork, and leadership as well as research and technical skills.
