  2. 2. Introduction  Valerie Varnuska, a resident of Westbury, NY, enjoys a wide range of extra-curricular activities from art and dance to astronomy and science. Valerie Varnuska developed an interest in robotics and takes great pleasure in watching robotic competitions on television. With competitions worldwide at the local, regional, and national levels, VEX Robotics encourages elementary, middle, and high school students to further their STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education with hands-on projects. Student teams taking part in the yearly robotic competitions are tasked with building their own robot to compete against rival robots in specific games.
  3. 3. VEX Robotics Competition  Each year 1,400 student robotics teams gain entry to the VEX Robotics World Championship, presented in conjunction with the Robotics Education & Competition Foundation, in Louisville, Kentucky, through national qualifiers. For the 10th annual competition to be held April 19-25, 2017, participants will be required to prepare their robots to play Starstruck, a game played in a 12-foot x 12-foot square field with the goal of moving cubes and stars into the opposition's space.
